Cardiac Angiogram

An angiogram indicates the health of blood vessels.
It can:

  • Reveal blocked or narrowed arteries.
  • Pinpoint where blockages are located.
  • Indicate how much blood flow is blocked through your blood vessels.
  • Check the results of previous coronary bypass surgery.
  • Check the blood flow through your heart and blood vessels.

Knowing this information can help your doctor determine what treatment is best for you and how much danger your heart condition poses to your health

Angioplasty & Stenting

   An angioplasty improves the chances of survival after a heart attack by widening the artery to promote blood flow. A patient suffering from a heart attack can be treated within 24-48 hours to increase the likelihood of a complete recovery. Time is of the essence as the sooner the patient is treated, the less damage there will be to the heart muscle.  

  • Relieves chest pain.
  • Prevents shortness of breath and other symptoms associated with a heart attack.
  • Cuts the odds of needing.
  • open-heart surgery.
  • Shorter Recovery time.
  • Lowers the risk of a subsequent heart attack.
  • Increases likelihood of survival

Endovascular Thrombectomy

An endovascular thrombectomy is procedure to identify and remove blockages that causes strokes. This acute opportunity for acute stroke care can: 

  • Reduce the likelihood of death
  • Reduce the likelihood of disability
  • Improve functional outcome of patients

 WHAT TO EXPECT? (Diagnostic Exams)

  • Patients will lie on an x-ray table and be given medication to help them relax.
  • A tiny puncture or incision is made into the artery at the insertion site.
  • A catheter is then inserted and threaded through blood vessels to the heart.
  • Thankfully, blood vessels have no pain receptors, so you won’t feel this.
