Coronary Angioplasty - What it is

Coronary angioplasty is a minimally invasive, non-surgical procedure used to open narrowed arteries.

It involves the use of a flexible catheter with a balloon at the tip which is inflated at high pressure on the narrowed arterial wall. Usually a stent (metallic wire mesh) will be placed in the artery after angioplasty. This will force the arterial plaque against the blood vessel and improve the blood flow to the heart muscle.
