Frequently Asked Questions
Coronary angioplasty also called PCI or PTCA – is a noninvasive procedure that helps treat coronary heart disease [blocked coronary arteries] by improving the blood supply to the heart muscle, through widening and opening of the narrowed coronary arteries. It is used to stop heart attacks in progress, treat chest pain (angina), and restore blood flow through the coronary arteries. The procedure is performed in the cardiac catheterization laboratory (or cath lab) by a specialized Interventional cardiologist.
Angiogram is performed prior to an angioplasty. Here, a thin plastic tube is inserted into an artery in the groin or arm. A long, narrow, hollow tube, called a catheter, is passed through the sheath and guided up the blood vessel to the arteries surrounding the heart. A small amount of contrast liquid is injected through the catheter and is photographed with an X-ray as it moves through the heart’s chambers, valves, and major vessels. From the digital pictures of the contrast material, the doctors can tell whether the coronary arteries are narrowed and whether the heart valves are working correctly.
Intravascular imaging has revolutionized the precision of angioplasty. One type of imaging is the Intravascular Ultrasound, where a miniature probe is used to study the nature of the plaque. Where regular angiography shows only a two-dimensional silhouette of the interior of the coronary arteries, IVUS visualizes the coronary artery from inside-out. This unique point-of-view picture, generated in real time, yields valuable information.
Yet another innovative method of intravascular imaging is Optical Coherence Tomography [OCT]. This produces high resolution intracoronary images using infrared light.
The new imaging technologies give crucial information whether the plaque blocking the vessel is hard or soft, is made up of lipids or calcium etc. They can also give accurate detail about the size of stent that may be needed, and assess post stenting status of the vessel as well.

Patient Happy Stories
Sitting in an OPD with a patient is never a good sight but when i accompanied my mother to Doctor Gaurav Ganeshwala’ clinic i could see a very different scenario where few people sitting there seemed happy because they had come for a follow up after a success plasty or were there to take a second opinion from the most experienced cardiologist in Pune ..the experience showed even with the staff dealing with the patients and giving prompt reply and humbly answering queries which is very rare these days.
While we say doctor it seems to everyone like a profession but Dr Gaurav Ganeshwala is passionate about it and gives personal attention to every single patient. If there is any problem he cures it with a smile on his face.
I consulted him for my dad’s complaint regarding chest heaviness. This is my personal experience with Dr Gaurav and his entire team. They try to understand the problem to the core, discuss in detail and suggest best possible treatment for the condition. My Dad and family are lucky to get my dad’s angioplasty done by Dr Shirish Hiremath & Dr Gaurav Ganeshwala which had complexity due to severe blockage. Special Thank You to Dr Shirish, Dr Gaurav and Dr Rahul for treatment, throughout guidance and support.
