Coronary Angiogram with PCI

Cost*: 220,000 THB

This package is valid until December 31, 2021

Coronary angioram and coronary angioplasty (also referred to as percutaneous coronary intervention, PCI) is a minimally invasive procedure that is used to treat coronary artery disease (plaque build-up inside the arteries). 

Purpose
The goal of coronary angioplasty is to compress the fatty plaque against the artery wall, making more room for blood to flow through. This improved blood flow can reduce chest pain, shortness of breath, and the risk of a subsequent heart attack.


Preparing to undergo the procedure
  1. Avoid food and water for at least six hours before the procedure.
  2. Discuss with Doctor whether any medications need to be stopped before the procedure.

Examination Process
  1. During the procedure, an intravenous line will be started for fluids and medication. 
  2. A local anesthetic will be injected to numb the area of your body that is used (the groin, the wrist, or the inside of the elbow). 
  3. A thin tube (catheter) with a small, deflated balloon at the tip will be guided into the narrowed or blocked artery. 
  4. Once the balloon-tipped catheter is at the site of the blockage, the balloon is inflated. This compresses the plaque against the artery wall, widening the blood vessel. 
*In most cases, a stent (a wire mesh tube used to hold the artery open) will be placed to help decrease the chance of the artery narrowing again. The stent stays in place permanently. The procedure will take approximately 60-120 minutes to complete.
