Complex angioplasty performed in a post-bypass patient

Date : June 02, 2016

Renowned interventional cardiologist Dr H K Bali (Director – Cardiology, Fortis Hospital Mohali) recently performed a very complex intervention in a post-bypass patient. Dr Bali was invited to present this complex case at a prestigious international conference - Transcatheter Therapeutics Asia – Pacific (TCTAP), held last month.

Sharing the case details, Dr Bali said, “Our 82-year-old patient underwent a bypass surgery for critical blocks in all three vessels of his heart in 2011. However, he started getting chest pain and breathlessness on mild exertion recently,” said Dr Bali.

We did an urgent angiography, which revealed critical total occlusion of the bypass graft supplying the major territory of the heart. “Treating this critical block was extremely difficult. The only route to the block was through a difficult retrograde passage via the main heart vessel of the patient, which was extremely tortuous and extensively calcified or blocked,” said Dr Bali.

Dr Bali and his team of surgeons conducted angioplasty for this critical blockade and successfully relieved the obstruction making the procedure one of its own kind in the World to be treated using angioplasty and stenting.
