Dr. Sameer Gupta, cardiologist at Metro Hospital, says that if a clot has formed in the heart, then angiography is the best test to identify it. With the help of this test, information about blood clot is easily available. In angiography, the heart is seen through X-ray.

In this X-ray, a catheter is placed in the patient's leg or arm and a dye is injected through it. This test tells how the blood circulation is happening in the heart. If there is any obstruction somewhere in the circulation then it is a sign that there is a blood clot or some kind of blockage. If blockage is found then treatment is done accordingly.

what is the price

Angiography is done free of cost in government hospitals. In private hospitals its cost ranges from Rs 8 thousand to Rs 10 thousand. This expenditure may be more or less than this. It depends on what kind of facilities the hospital is providing. Dr. Gupta says that if you have severe pain in the heart and difficulty in breathing, then you should definitely get this test done.

How is the treatment done?

Thrombolytic medicines are given to eliminate blood clots. If the clot does not dissolve with medicines then surgery is done. The clot is removed through surgery. Many types of tests are done before surgery. If the patient fits in these, then treatment is done by angioplasty.
