What is Angioplasty?

Angioplasty is a procedure that creates more space inside an artery that has plaque built up inside it. Your healthcare provider uses a tiny balloon to force plaque against the artery walls so blood can get through your artery. Often, they also place a stent or tube inside the newly opened space to keep it open.
At MGM Hospital CBD, we offer angioplasty as a treatment option for patients with blockages in their arteries, including those that supply blood to the heart. Our highly skilled and experienced team of cardiologists and cardiovascular surgeons use the latest technology and techniques to perform angioplasty procedures with precision and care.



Immediately inform us at our number if you have any of the following angioplasty symptoms:

  • Bleeding, clotting, or bruising at the point of insertion
  • Scar tissue or blood clots forming in the stent.
  • An irregular heartbeat, or arrhythmia. damage to a blood vessel, heart valve, or artery.


Our medical staff at our MGM hospital helps in detecting the following angioplasty causes:

  • Tearing of the lining of the artery resulting in total blockage and possible heart attack – this can usually be repaired with a stent
  • Stroke from a clot that is dislodged while the catheter is inside the body
  • Bleeding or bruising
  • Kidney problems, especially in people with underlying kidney disease and diabetes – this is caused by the iodine contrast dye used for the X-ray; intravenous fluids and medications can be given before and after the procedure to try to reduce this risk


To lower the risk of complications during and following angioplasty treatment, the medical staff at MGM hospital CBD belapur makes the following critical efforts:

  • Damage to the artery where the sheath was inserted.
  • Allergic reaction to the contrast agent used during the procedure.
  • Damage to an artery in the heart.
  • Excessive bleeding requiring a blood transfusion.
  • Heart attack, stroke or death.


The following steps have been implemented by our doctors at our MGM hospital to avoid an angioplasty:

  • Quit smoking.
  • Lower your cholesterol levels.
  • Eat a healthy diet that is low in saturated fat.
  • Maintain a healthy weight.
  • Control other conditions, such as diabetes and high blood pressure.
  • Get regular exercise.
  • Take medications as prescribed by your doctor.

How is it diagnosed?

At our MGM hospital, our skilled medical professionals employ a thorough method to diagnose angioplasty and provide following effective treatments strategies for each patient: You may need to have some tests, including a chest X-ray, electrocardiogram and blood tests, before your procedure. Your doctor will also perform an imaging test called a coronary angiogram to see if the arteries to your heart are blocked and if they can be treated with angioplasty. If your doctor finds a blockage during your coronary angiogram, he or she may decide to perform angioplasty and stenting immediately after the angiogram while your heart is still catheterized.
Diagnostic tests such as an electrocardiogram (ECG), echocardiogram, or stress test may also be ordered to evaluate the heart's function and identify any blockages or abnormalities in the arteries. These tests can help determine if angioplasty is the appropriate treatment option for the patient.


How is it treated?

Our goal at MGM Hospital CBD is to provide the highest quality of care to our patients, and we are dedicated to helping them achieve optimal health and wellness. We work closely with each patient to develop a comprehensive treatment plan that meets their individual needs, and we provide ongoing support and follow-up care to ensure the best possible outcomes.
Angioplasty is a medical procedure used to treat narrowed or blocked arteries in the heart. During an angioplasty, a cardiologist inserts a catheter into the affected artery and uses a balloon or stent to widen or support the artery. Here are a few reasons why it is better to have angioplasty performed by an expert cardiologist:


An expert cardiologist will have years of experience performing angioplasties and will have seen a wide range of cases. This experience allows them to quickly and accurately diagnose problems and develop effective treatment plans.


Angioplasty is a delicate procedure that requires a high degree of skill and precision. An expert cardiologist will have the necessary skills to perform the procedure safely and effectively.


Cardiologists who specialize in angioplasty will have a deep understanding of the latest techniques and technologies used in the procedure. This knowledge allows them to stay up-to-date with the latest advances and use the most effective methods to treat their patients.

Better outcomes

Studies have shown that patients who have angioplasty performed by expert cardiologists have better outcomes than those who have the procedure performed by less experienced doctors. This is because expert cardiologists are more likely to diagnose problems accurately, develop effective treatment plans, and perform the procedure safely and effectively.

Reduced risk of complications

Angioplasty is a complex procedure that can carry certain risks. Expert cardiologists are trained to recognize and manage potential complications, which can reduce the risk of adverse outcomes for their patients.

In summary, angioplasty is a complex medical procedure that requires skill, experience, and knowledge to perform safely and effectively. For these reasons, it is better to have the procedure performed by an expert cardiologist who specializes in angioplasty.
