Primary Angioplasty For Acute Myocardial Infarction

Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is the necrosis of the heart muscles
resulting from acute obstruction of a coronary artery.
“Time is Muscle” in AMI .

Primary angioplasty is a minimally invasive procedure that uses treats the
obstructed areas of the coronary arteries causing a myocardial infarction

Considering long travel distances and lack of cath lab in many districts –
“Lyse now and stent soon” is the apt strategy for managing AMI.

Approach for managing AMI:

Benefits of Primary angioplasty:

  • Class I therapy for AMI
  • Preserves heart muscles
  • Immediate restoration of blood flow
  • Fast recovery
  • Saves lives, immediate and long-term benefits

Procedure of primary angioplasty:

  1. A balloon catheter is inserted into the main artery in the groin or arm
  2. The catheter is passed gently into the aorta
  3. The balloon is inflated at the narrowed area(s) of the artery, thereby opening and widening it.
  4. A stent may also be placed to keep the artery open
