ANGIOGRAM

Angiogram is a procedure in which a very thin plastic catheter is passed into the chambers of the heart and also into the main blood vessels of the heart i.e. the coronary arteries which supply oxygenated blood to the heart muscle. A dye is then injected down the catheter into the artery and X-ray films are taken simultaneously. The dye shows up on the X-rays and brings to light any narrowing in the arteries.

 

Angiogram aims to detect any narrowing of the coronary arteries and the exact site and severity of any narrowing. This helps the doctor to decide on what treatment the patient might need. If the coronary arteries become narrowed, then less blood and oxygen get to the heart muscle, This can cause angina, heart failure and other heart conditions.

 

 

Sometimes a procedure called Coronary Angioplasty is performed with the angiogram. Coronary angioplasty is a procedure where a narrowed section of a coronary artery is widened using a specialized balloon and a stent attached to the catheter.
