Health Tip

Whether angioplasty and stenting is absolutely necessary or can be avoided depends on the sypmtoms, signs, ecg , acho and angiography findings of the patient.

  • Most of the times in situation of acute heart attack angioplasty with stenting is the life saving procedure. In heart attack patients angioplasty is the swiftest and surest procedure to open the artery ugently and thus is a life saving procedure. Angioplasty performed in heart attack situation is called a Primary Angioplasty and should be done as fast as possible as it reduces death rates as well as future disability rates.
  • In chronic stable patients who have not suffered a heart attack and were found to have coronary stenosis on angiography Angioplasty and stenting can be avoided based on clinical scenario. In such situations careful treatment with medicines is to be started in consultation with cardiologist. This treatment should be carefully and regularly followed in guidance of your cardiologist. There are many patients who do well on medicines alone.

Different hospitals have different cost depending upon their hospitality. But the cost varies between 10k to 20K & for angioplasty 1.5 to 2.5 lakhs for one stent

1) Please get him evaluated by a pulmonologist to rule out any lung problems like Asthma or COPD etc, because if he has a lung problem then concor needs to be stopped as it worsens respiratory issues and will also decrease his respiratory problem. 2) If there is an underlying lung problem then his treatment needs to be optimised. 3) do not take the oil steam therapy unless a pulmonologist clears it because at times it can further worsen the underlying lung issue.

Last month, my ECG showed some problem. THen TMT showed minor jerk in 4th quadrant. One cardiologist advised me for angiography followed by angioplasty. Other cardiologist told me" Nothing panic right now to opt for angiography immediately" I am bit nervous. BP high around 160/98, Taking tazloc 80 (12.5). Other medicine include Blood sugar and ecosprin AV 75/20. Pladvise me the urgency of angiography.

If your ECG and TMT both showed problem (but without looking at the ECG and TMT graph, I can only assume that the interpretation is correct) then it will be sensible to get an angiography done. You should also get a Echocardiography test done too. Angiography will help in finding out with 100% surety if the changes in the ecg are due to a heart block or is it just a false positive. If in angiography there is no blockage then you can be assured, in case there is blockage then it can be treated. When done by experienced intervention cardiologist angiography has very minimal risks associated, so instead of stressing so much get your angiography done and end the worry.
