What is Coronary Artery Disease?
This is the commonest of all cardiovascular disease. The coronary arteries supply oxygen and nutrients to the heart muscle, but once they become narrowed, or blocked, due to plaque deposition inside the vessel wall, or a clot blocking the lumen, the vital supply of oxygen is reduced, and the function of the heart is adversely affected.
Balloon Angioplasty and Stenting
A very effective treatment is Balloon Angioplasty and Stenting, which widens the blocked or narrowed segment of the involved vessel and reduce the incidence of post-procedural re-narrowing. This procedure is usually performed at the same setting following the initial cardiac catheterization and coronary angiography.
Another alternative is coronary bypass grafting via open heart surgery.
