Peripheral angiography helps the doctor in highlighting the blocked or narrow areas of arteries that carry blood to legs, limbs, knees, ankles, and arms. The doctor with the use of a dye, inserted in the peripheral arteries, generates images on the screen, which displays blockages and clots.
Steps to take before Peripheral Angiography
Discuss with our doctor about your allergies and any kind of medicine that you take. Our doctors at Medanta will guide you on the diet and will prescribe you medicines that you should take 24 hours before the tests. Leave all of your jewellery at home and arrange for someone to drive you back home.
What happens during Peripheral Angiography?
The first step in the procedure is to clean the area to be incised. A local anaesthesia is injected into the skin for numbing the area to be incised. Through the incision, a needle is placed into that artery. A thin plastic tube called catheter is made to pass through the needle and then the dye is made to flow through this catheter into the arteries. The dye flows with the blood stream creating images on the X-ray screen.
After Peripheral Angiography
Once the test is complete, the catheter and needle are carefully removed, and a bandage is put on the site. If required, you will be given a pain killing medicine, and you will have to rest in bed after the test for several hours. Our team of doctors and nursing staff will keep you comfortable throughout your diagnosis and stay.
