What’s a Bypass Surgery?
Plaques (a build-up of platelet, cholesterol and other substances) often clog the arteries which supply blood to your heart muscles. This delays the flow of blood into your heart arteries or interrupts them periodically, contributing to heart or chest pain. Heart Bypass Procedure is a form of surgical procedure that creates a ‘bypass’ path for blood supply through the clogged arteries, to increase the blood flow & oxygen to the distal part of the heart.
What is angiography?
Angiography is a blood vessel X-Ray test to see the patency of the ‘arteries.’ A type of dye is injected known as “contrast” in order to make the arteries visible on X-Ray. The arterial system, normally the area of the groin where your artery is close to the skin and can be squeezed against the hip bone positioned right behind it when appropriate, is supplied with a thin, sterile flexible tube called ‘catheter.’ Other fields are also used, such as the radial weapons. In the blood vessels, contrasts are then injected and X-ray images are collected. For better efficiency, we usually performed by radial-approach.
A small balloon is used to return circulation to the heart by reopening blocked or compressed arterials by ‘plaques.’ The cardiologist punctures a blood artery in the groin or wrist and then implants a short, thin tube known as a catheter, which is taken to the heart during the angioplasty operation. A balloon is tied to the bottom of the catheter to enlarge the artery. A permanent stent is often used before the balloon catheter is withdrawn to hold the artery intact.
