If the patient has been admitted early enough, the best treatment in Heart Attack is primary Angioplasty. This means immediate opening of the blocked vessels with a small ballon catheter via a puncture in the groin artery. (Please refer to chapter 12).
The advantage of this treatment is, that there is little or no damage to the heart muscle as a result of deprivation of blood supply.
Also, during primary angioplasty, the angiogram shows whether the blocked artery has opened.
Angioplasty immediately after a heart attack (Primary Angioplasty) has been accepted worldwide as the best treatment for heart attack.
