Coronary angiography is an essential procedure in patients with coronary atheromatous disease who may be candidates for coronary angioplasty or surgery.
Cororary angioplasty is the technique where coronary atheromatous obstructions are dilated by the inflation of a balloon within the artery. More information on Angioplasty.
Paediatric Cardiac Surgery & Intervention :
Directional coronary atherectomy :
Directional arthrectomy allows the resection and retrieval of an atherosclerotic plaque by means of a catheter
Coronary artery stenting :
Intracoronary stents are used to treat vessel closure following percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty.
Intravascular ultrasound :
Coronary angioplasty is accomplished using a balloon-tipped catheter inserted through an artery in the groin or arm to enlarge a narrowing in a coronary artery. Coronary artery disease occurs when cholesterol plaque builds up (atherosclerosis) in the walls of the arteries to the heart. Angioplasty is successful in opening coronary arteries in 90% of patients. 40% of patients with successful coronary angioplasty will develop recurrent narrowing at the site of balloon inflation.
Balloon valvuloplasty :
Pulmonary stenosis: The pulmonary valve is too tight so that the flow of blood from the right ventricle of the heart into the pulmonary artery is impeded. This means the right ventricle must pump harder than normal to overcome the obstruction. Treatment is needed if the pressure in the right ventricle is higher than normal. The obstruction can usually be relieved by a procedure called balloon valvuloplasty or by open heart surgery during which the stenotic valve is opened. The outlook after either procedure is favorable.
Coronary by-pass surgery:
Coronary artery bypass grafting may be indicated when a coronary angiogram shows >50% stenosis in the presence of any of the following
