What is a Balloon Angioplasty and Stent Procedure in Turkey (Peripheral Arterial Disease)?
Also known as Peripheral artery disease, balloon angioplasty is done on patients who have a common circulatory problem in which narrowed arteries reduce blood flow to their limbs.
How is a Balloon Angioplasty and Stent Procedure Done?
The patient lies on a table, usually on their back. A cannula is put in the arm, so the anaesthesiologist can give sedative or pain killers.
The operated area gets cleaned with antiseptic. The skin and deeper tissues get anesthetized with a local anaesthetic, this may sting a bit but afterward the patients don’t feel pain. Then a needle will be inserted into the artery. Angioplasty balloons are placed into the artery through a catheter. There will be machines that monitor the rate of the heart and blood pressure. If it wasn’t done before, the surgery will start with an angiography. So the doctor can see where and how many blockages the patient has.
After cardiologist checks to see if there are blockages or not, the procedure starts with the cardiologist putting a thin wire through the catheter to the area that will be operated on. This way, the cardiologist will be able to perforate the blocked artery. Along the wire, a tiny deflated balloon will be pushed to the area that is blocked, the balloon will be expanded. Expanding the balloon will compress the plaque against the wall of the artery, this will widen the artery. It is not abnormal for patients to feel a bit uncomfortable whilst the balloon is expanded, the reason for this is, the artery is being stretched. The uncomfortable sensation should go as the balloon is deflated. Once this is done, your cardiologist will deflate the balloon and remove it.
Who is a Candidate for Balloon Angioplasty and Stent Procedure?

How to Prepare for Balloon Angioplasty and Stent Procedure?

If they have any allergies, they have to inform the doctor about that too. They should also inform the doctor if they plan on having any other procedure and/or dental treatments soon. The patient will be asked to not eat or drink for some time before the surgery. Depending on what the doctor thinks, the patient may need to stay at the hospital for one night.
For the procedure, they will have a gown to wear. If they can’t take aspirin they should inform the doctor because he or she may ask the patient to take an aspirin a week before the surgery. This helps to prevent blood clots during the balloon angioplasty operation. Also, the patient should check with their doctor about the medications that they can take and they should stop before the surgery. Clinic Center cardiologist may want the patient to take their daily medications before the surgery on the surgery day, If so, then the patient should take it or them with a small amount of water.
