CORONARY ANGIOPLASTY IN IRAN: ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW
Angioplasty that is also called percutaneous coronary interventions or balloon angioplasty is an invasive medical procedure to dilate heart arteries. Angioplasty applies a tiny balloon to widen the artery. In this procedure balloon is inserted to blocked area in the point that blood flow has been reduced or cutoff. The balloon opens the artery by pushing the plaque through artery wall. Then the balloon is removed and blood easily flows through vessels. It takes about 30 minutes to several hours. Sometimes one night staying in hospital may be needed. Symptoms of blocked arteries (like chest pain or shortness of breathing) can be improved through angioplasty procedure.
Cause of angioplasty
If you have angina that is not responded to medication or improving lifestyle it seems that angioplasty is useful for you. Sometimes ischemia or severely reduced blood flow in heart muscle needs to be assessed by angioplasty. Moreover, People that suffer from chest pain or blockages are often candidates for angioplasty.
Angioplasty can widen blocked arteries so normal blood flow can move to your heart muscle. It is not considered as a major surgery. It is done by threading a catheter (thin tube) through a small puncture in a leg or arm artery to the heart. The blocked artery is opened by inflating a tiny balloon.
Preparation for angioplasty
Before stepping in angioplasty, you should consult with your cardiologist. Your doctor will ask your past medical and surgical history including diagnostic lab tests. An imaging test or angiogram also may be needed. Blockages should be assessed to be treated with angioplasty. Through heart angiography narrowing or blocking of heart arteries can be determined.
Exon will offer you a leaflet which contains instructions for pre and post angioplasty procedure. Eating and drinking should be stopped about 6 to 8 hours before procedure. Some medications will be stopped prior to angioplasty like diabetic drugs. Most of the time angioplasty has been scheduled however sometimes it can be an emergency procedure. Chest X-ray, Electrocardiogram and blood tests are requested whether angioplasty is scheduled before or occurred as an emergency case. Mostly you should stay at hospital for a night and also someone should take you home for the next day because you cannot drive.
Risks of Angioplasty
Angioplasty is considered as a kind of a less invasive approach to widen narrowed and clogged arteries however it has some potential risks. They may include:
• Restenosis or Re-narrowing of your artery. This may happen with angioplasty alone — without stent placement — restenosis happens in about 30 percent of cases
Other common risks may include:
• An irregular heartbeat, or arrhythmia
• Bleeding, clotting, or bruising at the point of insertion
• Scar tissue or blood clots forming in the stent
• Damage to a blood vessel, heart valve, or artery
• A heart attack
• Kidney damage, especially in people who have preexisting kidney problems
• An infection
This procedure may also be followed by the risk of stroke, however the risk is low.
What to expect from angioplasty
After angioplasty your blood flow greatly moves in recent narrowed coronary arteries. Chest pain and other symptoms will be subsided. It is notable that you should keep on healthy life style as your cardiologist prescribed because stent or angioplasty do not mean that your heart disease has been moved. However it is important that you consider some items including:
• Stop smoking
• Reducing cholesterol
• Keep healthy weight
• Have regular exercise
Coronary Angioplasty FAQs
1. What I might feel during angioplasty procedure?
A little pressure during the time catheter is put in, sometimes chest discomfort when fluid flows in, urgency for urination.

4. What material is stent made of?
It is a special type of medical rust proof material. These stents are often made of cobalt chromium and platinum.
5. Is it possible that stent pinch the heart or other organs?
The stent is placed inside the artery and gradually will be covered by lining of the artery and so it can never pinch or prick any other part of body.
6. Is it possible that stent get deformed through external pressure on chest?
As heart is located inside the chest cavity, no amount of pressure externally will reach the stent deployed inside the artery.
7. Is it possible for me to through X-ray or CT scan or MRI after stenting?
Yes it is possible. You can do X-Ray or CT Scan any time, you can also do MRI after one month.
8. Can stent Get Blocked Again After Angioplasty?
The related chance for this condition is 0.5% clot formation 5% to 15% Restenosis, Drug coated & Bare Metal Stent respectively.
