What is Angioplasty?

Angioplasty also called percutaneous coronary intervention is a procedure used to open clogged heart arteries. Angioplasty uses a tiny balloon catheter that is inserted in a blocked blood vessel to help widen it and improve blood flow to your heart. Angioplasty is often combined with the placement of a small wire mesh tube called a stent. The stent helps prop the artery open, decreasing its chance of narrowing again. Angioplasty can improve symptoms of blocked arteries, such as chest pain and shortness of breath. Angioplasty is also often used during a heart attack to quickly open a blocked artery and reduce the amount of damage to your heart.

Reason of Angioplasty

Angioplasty is used to treat the buildup of fatty plaques in your heart’s blood vessels. Angioplasty may be a treatment option for you if:

  • You have tried medications or lifestyle changes but these have not improved your heart health.
  • You have chest pain (angina) that is worsening.
  • You have a heart attack. Angioplasty can quickly open a blocked artery, reducing damage to your heart.

Risks

 It carries risks both during and after surgery. These may include:

  • Bleeding at the surgical areas
  • Infection of the incision area or inside your abdomen
  • Delayed emptying of the stomach, which may make it difficult to eat or to keep food down temporarily
  • Leakage from the pancreas or bile duct connection

Preparations

Your surgeon will review several factors to evaluate which approach to your surgery is best in your situation. He or she will also assess your condition and ensure that you are healthy enough for a complex operation. You may require some additional medical tests and optimization of some of your health conditions before proceeding to surgery.

Before the Procedure

For most aortic valve repair and aortic valve replacement procedures, you’ll receive anesthetics so you won’t feel any pain, and you’ll be unconscious during the surgery. You’ll also be connected to a heart-lung bypass machine, which keeps blood moving through your body during the procedure.

Diagnosis

Aortic valve repair

Aortic valve repair is usually performed through traditional open-heart surgery and opening of the chest bone (sternotomy). Doctors wire the bone back together after the procedure to prevent movement and aid in healing.

Aortic valve repair procedures may involve several different types of repair, including:

  1. Inserting tissue to patch holes or tears in the flaps (perforated cusps) that close off the valve
  2. Adding support at the base or roots of the valve
  3. Separating fused valve cusps
  4. Reshaping or removing tissue to allow the valve to close more tightly
  5. Tightening or reinforcing the ring around a valve (annulus) by implanting an artificial ring (annuloplasty)
  6. Aortic valves that can’t open fully due to aortic valve stenosis may be repaired with surgery or temporarily with a less invasive procedure called balloon valvuloplasty — which uses an approach called cardiac catheterization. You’re usually awake during cardiac catheterization.
  7. During balloon valvuloplasty, your doctor inserts a thin, hollow tube (catheter) in a blood vessel, usually in your groin, and threads it to your heart. The catheter has a balloon at its tip that can be inflated to help stretch the narrowed aortic valve and then deflated for removal.
  8. Balloon valvuloplasty is often used to treat infants and children with aortic valve stenosis. However, the valve tends to narrow again in adults who have had the procedure, so it’s usually only performed in adults who are too ill for surgery or who are waiting for a valve replacement. You may need additional procedures to treat the narrowed valve over time.
  9. Some replacement heart valves may begin to leak or not work as well over time. These issues can be fixed using surgery or a catheter procedure to perform aortic valve repair by inserting a plug or device to fix a leaking replacement heart valve.

Prevention

  1. In this procedure, your doctor removes the aortic valve and replaces it with a mechanical valve or a valve made from cow, pig or human heart tissue (valve). Another type of biological tissue valve replacement that uses your own pulmonary valve is sometimes possible.
  2. Often, biological tissue valves eventually need to be replaced because they degenerate over time. If you have a mechanical valve, you’ll need to take blood-thinning medications for the rest of your life to prevent blood clots. Doctors will discuss with you the risks and benefits of each type of valve and discuss which valve may be appropriate for you.
  3. Aortic valve replacement surgery may be performed through traditional open-heart surgery or minimally invasive methods, which involve smaller incisions than those used in open-heart surgery. Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is another type of minimally invasive aortic valve replacement that has a nonsurgical approach. It is also sometimes called transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). But minimally invasive aortic valve replacement is less common because not all situations are best addressed by this method of access to the damaged valve. When performed by experienced surgeons and centers, the results are similar to those with traditional open-heart surgery.
