Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

I understand your concerns.

The blood pressure may fluctuate after angioplasty.

Even brilinta can cause high BP as side effect.

Although high, it is not that concerning.

He does not have any other symptoms suggesting another blockage.

However if this BP persists even tomorrow, you will need to contact his doctor to adjust his BP medication.

Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
