What is percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA)?

Angioplasty alone or with an intracoronary stent with a professional medical team and equipment can provide benefits to patients, some of whom are: • Improvement of blood circulation in the heart thanks to the opening of tight and blocked arteries. • Performed by local anesthesia which presents fewer complications than general anesthesia. • Patients can resume normal activity after a short time. • This method can help relieve the pain of angina, the prognosis for the relief of unstable angina and minimize or eliminate the risk of cardiac arrest. • Angioplasty has significantly reduced the number of patients requiring open-heart surgery for bypass surgery to less than 1%.

• Patients with narrowed or hardened arteries around the heart. • Patients with coronary artery disease or angina pectoris. • Patients requiring emergency treatment following a heart attack.

Certain tests are necessary before surgery to allow the surgeon to control the probable risks. The doctor usually performs an angiogram before the angioplasty. Patients are admitted to the hospital the day before and since midnight drinking or eating is prohibited. The doctor prescribes the necessary instructions for you. It is also necessary to take aspirin and other drugs to thin the blood, which is prescribed by the doctor before surgery.
