What is angiography?

Angio can be summarized as the imaging of the vessels that feed the heart, called coronary vessels. It is a method we use to view these veins when suspected or symptoms of coronary artery disease, popularly known as arteriosclerosis.

WE RECOMMEND THAT PATIENTS BE DONE WITH TWO DIFFERENT APPROACHES CORONARY ANGIOGRAPHY.

If the physician detects complaints (such as the threat of heart attack) in the patient indicating the severity of the condition, he / she directly performs angiography without the need for some tests. Angiography should also be done directly during an acute heart attack. The aim here is to detect the occluded vessel immediately and to stop the heart attack, beyond the visualization of the heart vessels, and the procedure of opening the vessel (Stending) is life-saving. Here, we can stop the heart attack within the first two hours after the onset of balloon angioplasty and stenting together with angiography. In this way, we both reduce the risk of death and save the patient from the effects of a long-term heart attack.
