The Coronary Angiograms we conduct are part of a general group of procedures known as heart (cardiac) catheterizations. Cardiac catheterization procedures can both diagnose and treat heart and blood vessel conditions. A special dye and x-rays to understand the blood flow in the arteries. During Bharat Clinic’s Coronary Angiogram process, we inject into the heart’s blood vessels, a form of dye that is detectable by an X-ray machine.
Our X-ray machine then rapidly takes a series of images (angiograms), presenting a detailed look at the blood vessels. If required, doctors at Bharat Clinic open the clogged heart arteries (angioplasty) during the same session as the Coronary Angiogram. The purpose is diagnosing and treating the conditions of the heart. A mild sedative is given before the procedure to help the patient relax.
Your life is important, and we check if blood is flowing smoothly through the arteries. A smooth and outpatient -procedure will be conducted without the need of any Anaesthesia. We will see if there’s a restriction in blood flow going to the heart. The X-ray machine rapidly takes a series of images (angiograms), presenting a detailed look at the blood vessels. The common reasons for which Bharath Clinic conducts Coronary Angiogram are:
- Symptoms of coronary artery disease including pain in the chest, jaw, neck, or arm
- New or increasing chest pain (unstable angina)
- Congenital heart diseases
- Abnormal results on a non-invasive heart stress test
- Other blood vessel problems or a chest injury
- A heart valve problem that requires surgery
