Hello Narender, Chest pain after angioplasty is common. We suggest you take your brother to a good cardiologist. He/she will carefully evaluate the current condition of your brother. The most important thing here is to first understand the difference between cardiac causes and non-cardiac cause of chest pain. Non-cardiac causes can be treated medically. In the case of cardiac causes, a detailed evaluation is needed. Some diagnostic test may also be done to dig the exact cause and decide on the medical or surgical line of treatment. Wish your brother a speedy recovery. Hope our answer helps you.
