Angiography Overview

Angiography is basically an X-ray technique or a test procedure in which a dye is injected into the heart chambers or the arteries mainly coronary arteries which leads towards the heart. This technique let the doctors measure or quantify the blood flow along with blood pressure in the heart chambers and it even helps in revealing any sort of blockages in the arteries. This is also known with the names cardiac angiogram, cardiac catheterization or even catheter arteriography.

A coronary angiography is a particular type of it to help in finding out any blockages in the coronary arteries.

If you experience unstable angina, aortic stenosis, atypical chest pain, or even heart failure which is unexplained then your physician might believe you are at risk of heart attack and to analyze your condition better you might be asked to undergo angiography which is a test procedure.

During the angiography test, a contrast dye will be injected in your arteries with the help of a thin plastic tube known as a catheter, in the meantime your doctor will be watching the blood flow inside your heart on an X-ray screen.

Preparing for surgery

Before undergoing angiography test, the doctors usually prefer to get an MRI or CT scan test done. This is mainly done in order to rule out few heart problems and get a specific direction of the issue which finally is diagnosed with the help of angiography. Besides, you may even have to go through a proper blood work or tests which might even include blood sugar test for diabetes, and other tests like blood pressure test, and electrocardiogram. All these tests are done on a pre-procedure appointment day. If everything goes fine than you will be scheduled for an angiography test procedure.

Before the test, you must also discuss with the doctor about your medical history, if you have any sort of allergies from seafood or reaction towards any dye in the past, or if you are taking any medications like sildenafil citrate or in case you are pregnant.

A few preventive measures before the test, you will be instructed not to drink or eat anything eight hours prior the test procedure. You may even be told to get someone along with you to help you ride back home as well as to look after you since dizziness and lightheadedness are common after-effects of the test procedure although it is temporary and eventually subside on its own.

On the day of surgery

Angiography will be done under the effect of mild sedative which actually might help you to relax although, you will be awake in the entire procedure.

To begin with, the doctor will clean and numb the body region of the groin or arm with the help of anesthesia. You might feel a certain level of pressure when the sheet is inserted into an artery. A catheter, which is a thin plastic tube is gently moved up into the artery and the entire thing is being observed by the doctor over a screen. This helps the doctor to see if there is any blockage in the artery and later it can be treated.

Post surgery

The sensation of burning or flushing is felt because of the dye insertion. After the removal of the catheter, a pressure is applied over the site to avoid bleeding. You may be asked to lay down for few hours to prevent bleeding, in case the catheter is placed in your groin area. It might even cause slight back discomfort or pain. In order to flush out contrast dye from your system ensure drinking sufficient amount of water. Also, discharge from the hospital is given usually on the same day within 24 hours.

Recovery process

You must relax and give your body proper rest it demands as it speeds up the recovery process post-angiography. Follow a good healthy diet to help recover yourself. Also, do not indulge in smoking and drinking immediately after the test procedure until the body completely recovers from it. Ensure drinking lots of water daily. Avoid driving, or operating any sort of heavy machinery immediately after the procedure since it involves anesthesia and you might still be under its effect. A bandage can be removed after 24 hours of the surgery or if there is any oozing, you may even change the bandage after 12 hours.

Since the recovery period can take time of few days to few weeks so best is to avoid any kind of heavy exercise or even sex until your body feels ready. Just avoid any exertion over your body.

At least for three to four days, prefer using the hot tub for bathing and avoid direct application of any lotions or water on the procedure site. Follow up with your physician after a week of the angiography or before if you have any concerns. You must seek immediate help in case of any abrupt chest pain or any infection.
