Balloon Angioplasty in India starts from 3500-4500 USD. 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.
