About Balloon Angioplasty

Balloon Angioplasty in India starts from $4400. The total cost of the treatment depends on the diagnosis and facilities opted by the patient.

A minimally invasive technique, the process of balloon angioplasty is performed to open constricted or obstructed arteries. It involves inserting a catheter into an artery with a balloon connected to it. The balloon is inflated at the site where plaque deposits have blocked off or restricted the blood flow route.

Benefits of Balloon Angioplasty

  • The artery’s constriction may be decreased, resulting in better blood flow.
  • Major complications are quite rare.
  • You should be able to resume normal activities soon following the treatment.
  • Local anaesthetic is typically used for the operation, which has less hazards than general anaesthesia.

Follow Up Care

The week following angioplasty, you must be able to continue working or your usual schedule. Take plenty of liquids to help your body clear out the contrast dye. For at least a day post the procedure, avoid vigorous exertion and carrying heavy things. For a week, refrain from engaging in sexual activity, swimming or bathing.

Frequently asked questions about Balloon Angioplasty

The catheterization laboratory (sometimes known as the “cath lab”) is where balloon angioplasty is performed. The doctor injects a particular dye into the circulation through a small, thin tube known as a catheter. The dye enables your doctor to see the arteries on an X-ray display. A tiny balloon-tipped device is then placed via an artery in the arm or leg and threaded through arteries till it reaches the constricted region. The balloon is inflated to flatten the plaque against the arterial wall, allowing the artery to open and restore blood flow. After this the balloon is deflated and extracted from the body. The surgery generally takes around 1.5 to 2.5 hours followed by an overnight stay. It could also make  you drowsy till such time that the sedative wears off.

There are several postoperative complications and risks such as

  • Artery re-narrowing
  • Clots in the blood
  • Bleeding
  • Heart attack
  • Damage to the coronary arteries
  • Kidney issues
  • Stroke
  • Heart rhythm irregularities
