Coronary heart disease is the disease of coronary arteries. Like branches of a tree, these arteries are apread over the surface of your heart. Their job is to supply oxygen rich blood and vital nutrients to your entire heart muscle. Your heart needs all of this to perform its routine functions.
When these arteries become narrow, you feel sick and experience the symptoms of coronary heart disease. This happens because somewhere inside your coronary arteries, fatty deposits may have build up. Your heart does not receive the required amount of blood especially when you are exercising, running up and down the stairs or whenever you are physically active.
Coronary Angioplasty is a non-surgical procedure. It is used to unblock your coronary arteries. This procedure allows the blood to flow more easily to your heart muscle. In case of a heart attack it is performed as an emergency treatment. You may choose to have angiography and angioplasty at the same time to avoid extra dye and time at the hospital.
Please do not eat or drink anything from midnight i.e. night before your angioplasty.
Your Angioplasty will be performed at Bilal Hospital Cath Lab.
During the procedure:
Coronary Angioplasty may take an hour and a half to two hours. (90 - 120 mins)
During Angioplasty, you may experience some of your symptoms. So if you feel any discomfort or pain please tell your doctor right away.
Once your procedure is complete, the catheter will be removed and your doctor or nurse will press on your puncture site. To allow your puncture site to seal properly, you may need to stay in bed for 6 to 8 hours. Your movements will be restricted during this time.
You will be kept under observation at Bilal Hospital for at least 24 hours.
Possible risks depend on your overall health and heart condition. Please talk to your Cardiologist about risks before agreeing to have angioplasty.
Take following steps for speedy recovery:
