BANGKOK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Phyathai Nawamin International Hospital in Thailand recommends Coronary Angiogram as the best way to treat Coronary artery disease. An angiogram is one of the most common diagnostic tests in terms of heart problems, like coronary artery disease associated with heart arrhythmias, aneurysms, and heart failure.
Coronary Angiogram is a special X-ray to see your heart’s blood vessel using an injected contrast dye. The most common procedure of this is cardiac catheterization using radial artery and femoral artery approach.
It is done in a catheterization laboratory; the patient should refrain from eating and drinking at least 6 hours prior to procedure. During the procedure, the patient is monitored using cardiac monitor. This medical imaging can clearly visualize the inside of your blood vessels.
About coronary artery disease :
Coronary artery disease (CAD) is a chronic disease in which the coronary arteries gradually harden and narrow (atherosclerosis). This condition is also referred to as coronary heart disease. Coronary artery disease (CAD) is a major public health problem worldwide, especially Saudi Arabia. CAD patients tend to have periodic episodes where the heart is not receiving enough oxygen-rich blood (cardiac ischemia). Some patients feel no symptoms during these episodes (silent ischemia), while others may experience significant chest pain, pressure or discomfort (angina). If an episode of cardiac ischemia is severe or lengthy, it could trigger cardiac arrest (in which the heart stops beating) or heart failure.
