Angiography is an X-ray procedure that examines blood arteries. Because blood vessels are difficult to see on a standard X-ray, a special dye must be injected into your blood first. This draws attention to your blood vessels, making it easier for your doctor to spot any abnormalities. Angiograms are the X-ray pictures generated during angiography.
Angiography is a procedure that examines the condition of your blood arteries and the flow of blood through them. It can aid in the diagnosis or investigation of a variety of blood vessel issues, including:
Atherosclerosis is a narrowing of the arteries that increases the risk of a stroke or heart attack.
Atherosclerosis of the peripheral arteries – Leg muscles have a lower blood supply.
An aneurysm is a protrusion in the brain.
It can provide pictures of blood vessels in a variety of organs. As a result, angiograms are frequently used to assist doctors in diagnosing disorders affecting the heart, brain, arms, and legs. Angiograms can be used to identify anomalies in the blood vessels, such as weakening blood vessels, plaque deposits, and blood clots.
Angiography comes in a variety of forms, depending on which area of the body is being examined.
The following are examples of common types:
Coronary Angiography - a procedure that examines the heart and blood arteries nearby.
angiography of the brain — a procedure that examines the blood arteries in and around the brain.
Pulmonary Angiography - a procedure that examines the blood arteries that supply the lungs.
Renal Angiography is a procedure that examines the blood arteries that feed the kidneys.
A catheter is a long, thin, flexible tube that is placed into an artery and carefully directed to the location to be studied. When this is done, you may feel some pressing and tugging, but it should not be uncomfortable.
Angiography takes around 30 minutes to 2 hours to complete.
Eight hours before the angiography, don't eat or drink anything. Make arrangements for someone to drive you home. Because you may feel dizzy or light-headed for the first 24 hours following your cardiac angiography, you should have someone remain with you the night after your test.
Angiograms are performed in the radiology or X-ray departments of hospitals.
In preparation for the examination:
You'll be awake most of the time, although you could be given a sedative to help you unwind.
A small cut (incision) is made across one of your arteries, generally around your groin or wrist, while you lie on an X-ray table. A local anaesthetic is given to numb the region where the cut is made.
A tiny flexible tube (catheter) is introduced into the artery and gently directed to the location to be studied (such as the heart)
After injecting a dye (contrast medium) into the catheter, a series of X-rays are obtained as the dye passes through your blood arteries.
You could feel weary, and the incision site will probably be sore for up to a week. Bruising might persist up to two weeks.
After an angiogram, your groin or arm may have a bruise and feel sore for a day or two.
Patients need 8-12 hours of bed rest following coronary angioplasty, according to researchers' clinical experience. The cornerstone of related research throughout the world is determining the best period for bed rest following angioplasty and removing the arterial sheet.
Your groin or arm may bruise and be uncomfortable for a day or two after an angiography. For many days, you can do light tasks around the house but nothing hard. Your doctor may give you precise advice about when you may resume routine activities like driving and returning to work.
