What Is Angioplasty?

According to Dr. Subhendu Mohanty, an interventional cardiologist at Sharda Hospital in Noida, angioplasty is a treatment used to widen a blood vessel or arteries that have become clogged or restricted by plaque in order to restore normal blood flow to the heart.

When Is It Required?

“When a patient suffers an acute heart attack or severe anginal pain while exerting during a physical activity — and they collapse — an angioplasty must be conducted,” Dr. Mohanty mentioned.

According to the specialist, the treatment is carried out if there are severe obstructions in the heart’s arteries that prevent regular blood flow from occurring and the patient’s anatomy supports it.

What Does Post-operative Care Entail?

According to Dr. Mohanty, a person’s ability to resume normal activities depends on their heart’s health. A healthy individual can return to their routine in 3–4 days, but someone with co-morbidities will need more time.
