Peripheral Angiography

In patients with diseases of the arterial or venous systems or the lymphatic system, our specialist doctors often recommend medication and, if necessary, vascular surgery. Peripheral Angiography is a procedure that is sometimes required to diagnose and manage diseases that affect the circulatory system (excluding the brain and heart) and blockages. A thin tube or a catheter is inserted into the artery. This is guided with the help of a machine called the angiogram. Angiography will help determine the extent of blockage. Sometimes this is combined with an angioplasty in which a small balloon at the tip of the catheter is inflated to remove the plaque deposits and widen the blood vessel. A stent is also put in place if necessary.
