Angioplasty in India

Medical tourism has given a great opportunity to people who cannot afford life saving procedures such as Angioplasty in their country, or in countries where the medical facilities are not developed enough to offer minimally invasive heart procedure such as Angioplasty. Heart hospitals in India offer angioplasty at most affordable prices. The cost of stent surgery in India is less than a fifth of what it costs to get it done in any Western countries. You can be rest assured that with top medical tourism companies like Abyssinia, you are in safe and best hands.


Angioplasty, also known as coronary angioplasty or percutaneous coronary intervention is a minimally invasive procedure used to widen the occluded blood vessels or to relieve stenosis (blockage) of blood vessels to ensure proper blood flow to the heart. The procedure is done when a person develops Coronary Artery Disease or CAD.

Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) causes arteries to get stenosed or become narrow because of deposition of calcium and fat called plaque on the arterial walls. This build-up is called atherosclerosis, which if left untreated, can lead to heart attack.

Angioplasty can be performed for two main reasons:

During or after Heart attack–Angioplasty is done to quickly open a blocked artery to minimise the damage to the heart. Due to complete blockage of arteries and absence of oxygen to heart muscles, heart muscles can get damaged or this can even lead to death.

Chest pain/Angina–The arteries of the heart are narrowed and this increases the stress on heart to meet the oxygen demand causing chest pain, shortness of breath also known as angina. Angioplasty can be done as a planned procedure when medicines have failed to work.


Rotablation is done when the plaques are too hard to be cut or crossed by balloon or stents. A special guide wire is passed till the site of stenosis followed by a drill powered by compressed air is advanced at a speed of around 140,000 to 160,000 rpm. The process of drilling cuts the plaques calcium deposits into small particles which are removed from the body naturally. This is followed by normal angioplasty- ballooning and stent placement.

Your doctor would recommend you to undergo an angioplasty if:

Not everyone suffering from CAD or atherosclerosis is a good candidate for Angioplasty. If your heart muscles are already weak or if you have blockages in multiple vessels or if the narrowing is in the main artery bringing blood to the heart, you would need a Coronary Artery Bypass Graft, or CABG commonly called open heart surgery.

The procedure is done under local anaesthesia with sedation in a cardiac cath lab. Groin or arm is prepared for catheter insertion. Blood thinning medicines are introduced. A needle is inserted into the artery and a guide wire is passed through it. The wire is manipulated to blockage and a catheter is passed over the wire to reach the blockage. The location of all tubes and catheters are checked for position with proper diagnostics. A balloon is at the catheter tip is expanded and deflated to relieve the artery narrowing. A stent can be placed after expansion to maintain the expanded status or the artery and keep it patent. The incision is closed and dressed. The patient is monitored for blood pressure.

Patients can be discharged after an overnight stay at the hospital. It depends on the condition of the patient's health and doctor's advice. After surgery patient is advised lot of fluid intake and advised to not do any heavy lifting, exercise or smoking for the next 24 hours.

Angioplasty increases blood flow through narrowed and blocked arteries. Angina is decreased and health improves with exercise. With proper changes in lifestyle and medications the improvement of health is good. No further surgery is usually necessary, such as bypass after a successful coronary angioplasty.

Overnight stay at the hospital is sufficient for post-operative recovery and procedure requires anywhere between 30 minutes to 3 hours depending on the level of narrowing and other complications. You would need to stay in town for about a week to make sure you have recovered well before you can go back. You thus need a total of around 8-9 days for Angioplasty in India
