Replace stent is generally known as post stent or ring in the heart organ. Keep in mind that the ring post heart is a procedure to widen the coronary arteries in the heart are clogged. It not to eliminate clogging plaque or thrombus on the walls of our blood vessels.
It is intended to open or widen blood vessel coronary / blockages to the heart of the heart so that the heart can again receive blood supply and oxygen.
is a procedure that uses X-ray imaging to see your heart’s blood vessels. The test is generally done to see if there’s a restriction in blood flow going to the heart.
Coronary angiograms are part of a general group of procedures known as heart (cardiac) catheterizations. Cardiac catheterization procedures can both diagnose and treat heart and blood vessel conditions. A coronary angiogram, which can help diagnose heart conditions, is the most common type of cardiac catheterization procedure.
During a coronary angiogram, a type of dye that’s visible by an X-ray machine is injected into the blood vessels of your heart. The X-ray machine rapidly takes a series of images (angiograms), offering a look at your blood vessels. If necessary, your doctor can open clogged heart arteries (angioplasty) during your coronary angiogram. The angiogram is performed in a cardiac catheter laboratory by a cardiologist, specialised nurses and technicians. It takes about 30 to 40 minutes. Patients need to be awake during the procedure, so they can follow the doctor’s instructions
A stent procedure is very similar to that of an angioplasty. A balloon-tipped catheter is passed through a sheath and into the coronary artery at the site of the narrowing or blockage. The catheter is then inflated, compressing the narrowing or blockage, and opening the artery. This improves blood flow to the heart.
The first procedure operation tide heart ring is to widen the coronary arteries that are narrowed is done by injecting anesthetic in the groin
Next later, a heart surgeon perform the next step by inserting a small tube or in medical language called a catheter into the arm or leg
Backed with the help of the image on the monitor screen, the doctor directs a small tube in the direction of the arteries that are narrowed or blockage in the heart
After that step on the next steps with the provision of a second catheter that has a larger size and equipped balloons and heart ring or stent. Then the catheter is connected to both the first catheter that has been inserted into the blood vessel.
You may feel some pressure when the balloon is inflated. This is normal and will go away quickly.
The catheter is then removed. The stent, mounted on the end of another balloon catheter, is moved up and positioned in the coronary artery, at the site of narrowing or blockage.
The catheter is inflated, causing the stent to expand and be implanted in the vessel. The balloon catheter is then deflated and removed. Sometimes more than one stent is placed in the artery. You can be reassured that your stent cannot move or be dislodged.
During the procedure you will be given a blood-thinning agent.
