What you need to know about Coronary Angioplasty Munich

Coronary Angioplasty is a non-surgical procedure to open up clogged coronary arteries and it is also known as percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Coronary arteries provide blood to heart tissue. In this method, a balloon is temporarily inserted into the blocked artery and inflated to increase its diameter. Blocked coronary artery causes chest pain and shortness of breath, Angioplasty helps reduce both these problems. Also, it is performed during the treatment of a heart attack to open up the arteries rapidly. It prevents damage to your heart and Coronary arteries are end arteries. Once they are blocked, there is no anastomosis to provide an alternative and as a result, the cardiac muscles die. This poses a lot of risks to your health.

It is primarily a treatment for atherosclerosis, with this disease; fat plaques are deposited into the coronary arteries. Angioplasty is chosen when lifestyle changes and medicines do not work and if the plaque continues to deposit, several health problems are initiated.

Not everyone can go for an angioplasty. If you have plaques in multiple arteries a coronary bypass surgery is chosen. Similarly, if you are suffering from other diseases such as diabetes, surgery is recommended. 

What's the Recovery Time?

Recovery times depend upon the condition of the patient as it will take more time to recover if the angioplasty was performed under emergency conditions. If not, recovery will take less time. Only one week in needed to get back to your normal routine after angioplasty. You will feel tired after slight activities, but this will get better after some time.

What's the Success Rate?

Coronary angioplasty has a high success rate. However, it differs in accordance with the condition of the patient. According to a study, patients with angina but no history of a heart attack showed a 90% success rate while those who suffered from angina and a heart attack previously showed a 64% success rate. A Heart attack reduces the success rate of coronary angioplasty.
