What you need to know about Angiography in Hamburg

Angiography is a procedure that uses X-ray contrast to check the blood vessels (arteries or veins) in your body. Since blood vessels do not show clearly on a normal X-ray, contrast (a special dye) needs to be injected into your blood first. The contrast spreads through the blood and highlights the blood vessels, so that they appear on the X-ray images, allowing your doctor to see any problems in your blood vessels. The X-ray images created in angiography are called angiograms. 

Angiography is performed to see how blood flows through your blood vessels and to check their health. It may be used as the first step to find and fix various problems that affect the blood vessels, such as:

  • A pulmonary embolism or blood clots, which is a blockage in the artery that supplies your lungs.

  • Angina is chest pain that is caused by reduced blood flow to your heart muscles.

  • A brain aneurysm is a bulge in a blood vessel in your brain.

  • Peripheral arterial disease is a condition in which the blood supply to your leg muscles is reduced.

  • Atherosclerosis is the narrowing of the arteries. This increases your risk of having a heart attack or stroke.

  • A blockage in the blood supply to your kidneys.

What's the Recovery Time?

You must rest for 1 day and will be able to resume most of your normal activities the next day after angiography. However, you need to avoid strenuous activities, such as vigorous exercise and heavy lifting, for a few days following the procedure.

What's the Success Rate?

Angiography is a safe and efficient procedure, with a high success rate. According to a study, the success rate for coronary angiography is 97.6%. 

While angiography is generally safe, minor side effects are common, such as bruising, soreness, and a collection of blood neat the incision site. These problems are usually not serious and should improve in a few days or weeks.

Although very rare, there is also a small chance of complications. Such as an infection around the area where the cut was made, a reaction to the contrast, kidney damage due to the dye, damage to a blood vessel, heart attack, stroke, and allergic reaction to the dye.
