Angioplasty in India

Angioplasty is a standard procedure for relieving blockage from coronary arteries or major blood vessels. In a number of cases, the candidates are diagnosed with a blockage in the major blood vessels (coronary artery in most cases), which needs to be cleared in order to ensure unhindered flow of blood circulation throughout the body. Thus, for the restoration of normal blood flow, the blood vessels need to be blockage free, which is achieved by angioplasty in some candidates. A minute incision in the wrist or the groin region helps the surgeons surgically insert a tube to clear the passage in the affected area diagnosed. The procedure is also used to broaden shrunken or narrowed arteries. The procedure has emerged as a lifesaver, and is practiced in various parts of the world. Apart from the USA and the UK, other countries which are popular for performing angioplasty are India, Malaysia, Turkey, etc. The reason why number of candidates opt for angioplasty in India is because of the extensive research that has already been done on the procedure there and the proficiency of the surgeons performing the procedure.

Introduction

Angioplasty is mostly performed to clear blockage in the arteries around the heart. Clearing blockage is of utmost importance as it can lead to a range of other cardiac diseases or as well as lead to cardiac arrest or stroke. However, open surgery to clear the passage is not feasible, which is why, the researchers had come up with a better approach, that is, inserting a tube to clear the block. The procedure is recognized as Percutaneous Coronary Intervention abbreviated as the PCI. The procedure is performed coupled with angiogram which uses X-ray for viewing the blood vessels clearly on the screen. This makes it possible for the surgeons to view the blood vessels clearly and perform angioplasty without any hindrance.

About Procedure

The procedure of angioplasty is branched into two distinct types:

  • Stent angioplasty: Stents are wired mesh which are inserted inside the arteries during angioplasty. Stents are required to be inserted inside the blood vessels in case of narrowing. Thus, after the stents are placed in position, it prevents the blood vessels from narrowing or shrinking again, thereby restoring the normal blood flow.
  • Balloon angioplasty: Balloon angioplasty is mostly accompanied by stent angioplasty. However, in cases where insertion of stents is practically not feasible, balloon angioplasty is performed alone. In this procedure, the surgeons insert a tube containing a deflated balloon. Another tube follows which when pushed fills the balloon with a fluid causing it to inflate thereby clearing the passage of the artery and restoring normal blood flow.

Details about cost

The cost of angioplasty depends on a number of factors. One of the most important factors is the country where the procedure is being availed from. Some countries like India, Indonesia, etc., offer packages lower than most other countries. However, countries like the USA and the UK offer exaggerated charges which do not become affordable for everyone. In general, the cost of angioplasty in India has been estimated to be approximately $6000. However, the cost of the procedure varies as per the doctor or the surgeons performing the procedure, the multispecialty clinic from where the procedure is being availed from, necessary diagnosis involved as well as treatment required for complications, if any. Besides, the cost of the procedure also depends on the type of procedure availed by the candidate and follow up appointments/ treatments required.

Telemedicine as a service

Telemedicine services for consultation can be easily availed by the candidates. Online bookings for consultation can be availed directly from the website of the clinic, and the necessary formalities need to be fulfilled. Henceforth, the visitation at the scheduled time can be accomplished from any part of the world. The candidate needs to visit the country and the hospital at the time of scheduled procedure. Follow-up treatments required can be availed by the candidate online as well. This service has proven to be one of the most beneficial services as patients can consult doctors on an international scale without any hassle and also fetch expert suggestions from the comfort of home without the need to be travel thousands of kilometres.
