Angioplasty Travel Insurance

Travel Insurance for somone who has had an Angioplasty procedure to fix the flow of blood through the artery. This procedure involves a Doctor inserting a tube into a blood vessel in the Patient’s arm or groin. The tube has a tiny balloon attached to it, which, when it has reached the particular obstructed area, inflates and thereby opens up the artery again.

Angioplasty Medical Questions

When obtaining a quote for Travel Insurance, you will be asked a number of questions. These questions will only take a few moments and will give you an idea as to the cost for the policy.

  • Have you ever been a smoker ?
  • How long ago was your Angioplasty performed ?
  • At any time BEFORE your Angioplasty, did you have a Heart Attack ?
  • Have you EVER had any symptoms of Angina (eg chest pain, chest tightness) since your last procedure ?
  • Have you had a Heart Attack at any time AFTER your Angioplasty ?
  • How many (if any) Coronary Stents do you have ?
  • Can you always walk 200 yards on the flat without becoming short of breath ?
  • Have you been advised to take medication for High Blood Pressure ?
  • Have you been advised to take a medication to lower your Cholesterol Level ?

Coronary Angioplasty

The Coronary Angioplasty procedure itself is relatively quick, usually about 30 minutes, although it may take longer depending on how many arteries need treating. After the procedure, the artery will need to be checked to see if it has been widened enough for the blood to flow through more freely which is done by monitoring a small amount of dye as it flows through the artery. If the procedure is straight forward, you should be able to go home the same day, but sometimes an overnight stay is required. You will be advised not to drive for a week after the procedure.

Following the Coronary Angioplasty, most people will require further treatment for up to a year in the form of blood thinning medication.

Hardening of the Coronary Arteries causes Angina as it restricts blood flow to the heart. Coronary Angioplasties are often used as an emergency treatment after a Heart Attack.
