A coronary angiogram, also known as a coronary angiography, is a procedure that employs contrast dye and X-ray images to show the coronary arteries, the blood veins that supply your heart. The goal of the procedure is to find coronary artery blockages. The procedure known as a coronary angiogram is used to both diagnose and treat diseases affecting the heart and blood vessels.
If you are having any of the below given conditions, it will be advised that you get an angiography:
A little tube called a catheter is inserted into a blood vessel through the wrist or groyne. After the catheter is inserted, contrast injection and X-ray images are taken. Your doctor may occasionally decide that additional treatment (such as the installation of a stent) is necessary to expand the restricted artery. This is because an X-ray machine may pick up on this fluid and that your doctor may see the flow and identify any obstructions. After the operation, the catheter is removed.
Typically, angiograms last between 30 and 60 minutes. However, it will take longer if your doctor completes any extra procedures.
For a while, you'll be watched, and we'll monitor your vital signs. You will be advised to walk. Drink plenty of water to remove dye from your body. Based on the information you provide, your doctor will inform you of any possible treatment options. You could be released the same day or advised to stay in the hospital overnight. It will be decided upon how to schedule a follow-up appointment.
The reports outline how many coronary arteries are narrowed or blocked, as well as how much blood flow is obstructed by the blood vessels. Blockages in your blood vessels can be found by your doctor. The blood flow through your heart and blood arteries as well as the outcomes of any past coronary bypass surgery are also checked.
Angiograms aid in the diagnosis of cardiovascular disorders, congenital anomalies of the heart or blood vessels, the detection of any blood vessel abnormalities (such as plaque deposit or blood clots), the evaluation of your health prior to surgery, and the verification of stent implantation.
