Is it not possible for me to undergo an angioplasty if my sugar and BP is high ?

i have had a angioplasty last month with no history of diabetes or bp...although i was admitted late and hence showed signs of instant high blood sugar and doctor waited almost ten days before going for angioplasty to reduce the sugar levels...unlike the other doctors suggesting for a immediate surgery ...i want to know if my doctor was right in this decision becoz i had even got an attack in those ten days

Before doing any kind of surgery to the body, the blood sugar levels and blood pressure levels must be normal otherwise there is risk of severe infections and bleeding respectively. You would be monitored well during that time you were waiting for the Surgery, along with the medication which would have been prescribed.
