If the problem is still persisting you need to get your Cardiologist on this. This is probably due to improper stent patency which can also be due to clotting problem. Kindly consult your Cardiology in this regard who will order blood coagulation tests and may also get an angiogram done.

Cardiologist, Interventional Dr. Raja Sekhar Varma's  Response
Dizziness may be due to fluctuations of BP and/or heart rate. It could also be due to other unrelated factors like vestibulitis, middle ear problems, vertebro-basilar insufficiency, to name a few. Your BP should be measured in lying down and standing positions. You could check BP and blood sugar during the episode of giddiness. Please consult your treating cardiologist and clarify things. Giddiness in the absence of chest discomfort or breathing difficulty may not be directly related to your angioplasty.
