Angioplasty Price in India 9 Min Read | 110

Angioplasty is a minimally invasive procedure to open narrowed or blocked arteries (blood vessels that carry blood from the heart to body parts) that let blood go through more easily. People who have heart attacks or coronary artery disease (CAD) require angioplasty. It is also used in other parts of the body that have narrowed or blocked arteries such as the neck, kidney, pelvis, and arms. Angioplasty allows more blood to pass through a blocked blood vessel, which results in more blood supply to the organ where the artery reaches. 

The price for angioplasty varies depending upon the type of angioplasty performed, the hospital or doctor the patient chooses, the present health condition, and the insurance coverage of the patient. On average, the angioplasty price in India may vary from INR.50,000 to INR 150000  in private hospitals and at a range of INR 60,000 in public sectors.

What does Angioplasty treat?

Angioplasty helps to open up or widen the blocked or narrowed arteries which helps to improve circulation. Deposition of plaques (fat and cholesterol) inside the blood vessels is known as atherosclerosis. Angioplasty helps to treat atherosclerosis. It Maya also helps to manage:

  • Coronary artery disease: coronary angioplasty helps to widen the narrowed arteries reaching the heart. Blockage in the arteries reaching to the heart may cause heart attack and chest pain.
  • Peripheral artery disease: Angioplasty helps to remove the clot in your foot, hands, and pelvis.
  • Carotid artery disease: Angioplasty helps to remove clots in your neck. Improper circulation in the carotid artery causes less oxygenated blood supply to the brain which may even result in stroke.
  • Chronic kidney disease: renal angioplasty may help to remove the plaque buildup in renal arteries.
     

The angioplasty price can be varied based on different factors. The factors which determine the cost of angioplasty are:

  • Type of angioplasty: The cost of angioplasty depends on the type of angioplasty performed for you. Balloon angioplasty, laser angioplasty, and drug-eluting stent angioplasty are some of the commonly used types of angioplasty procedures.
  • The hospital or diagnostic centre: The cost of angioplasty is dependent on the hospital you have chosen to perform the procedure. As different hospitals have different infrastructures, pricing policies, quality of services, and availability of healthcare professionals, the price varies in different places.
  • Doctor’s fees: The amount charged by doctors to perform angioplasty also varies from person to person. A well-experienced and well-known doctor charges a little higher cost as compared to the low-experienced or junior doctors.
  • Insurance coverage: the cost of angioplasty varies based on your insurance coverage schemes. Some insurance companies pay half or the full amount needed for the procedure. It is recommended you check with your insurance provider to know how much coverage your existing scheme has for performing medical procedures.
  • Location: The location of the diagnostic centre or hospital also plays a role in assessing the cost of angioplasty. Hospitals located in metro cities or town areas charge a little higher amount as compared with the rural or village areas.
  • Medicines: The cost of medicines prescribed will also affect the cost of angioplasty
  • Medical complications: Any complications or medical emergencies after this procedure may also affect the final angioplasty cost
  • Post-operative care: The cost of post-operative care, hospital stay, and follow-up appointments also play a role in determining the angioplasty price.

The cost of angioplasty is calculated based on several factors. It is the total of hospital fees, doctor’s and nursing staff’s fees, price of medicines, and the associated diagnostic tests performed. The total price can be decreased if the patient has an insurance policy which is ready to pay a portion of the medical procedure.

Conclusion

The cost of angioplasty varies in different states of India depending on various factors such as the type of angioplasty, insurance coverage, the patient's health status, the hospital chosen, and the doctors to whom the patient approaches.
