  • Coronary Angioplasty

Coronary angioplasty, also known as percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), is a minimally invasive procedure aimed at treating narrowed or blocked arteries in the heart. This procedure involves the use of a catheter with a balloon at its tip to widen the narrowed artery and restore proper blood flow to the heart muscle. In some cases, a stent may also be placed to help keep the artery open.

Why is Coronary Angioplasty Done?

Coronary angioplasty is performed to alleviate symptoms caused by coronary artery disease, such as chest pain (angina) and shortness of breath. It is also done to reduce the risk of heart attack by improving blood flow to the heart muscle. Additionally, angioplasty may be recommended as part of emergency treatment during a heart attack to restore blood flow to the affected artery and minimize heart damage.
