Artery Angioplasty

Coronary artery angioplasty, also called percutaneous coronary intervention, is a procedure used to open clogged heart arteries. Angioplasty uses a tiny balloon catheter that is inserted in a blocked blood vessel to help widen it and improve blood flow to your heart.

Angioplasty is often combined with the placement of a small wire mesh tube called a stent. The stent helps prop the artery open, decreasing its chance of narrowing again. Angioplasty may be a treatment option for you, if:

  • You have tried medications and lifestyle changes, but these have not improved your heart health.
  • You have worsening chest pain (angina).
  • You had a heart attack.
  • You have blocked arteries.

Coronary angioplasty greatly increases blood flow through the previously narrowed or blocked coronary artery. Having angioplasty and stenting doesn’t mean your heart disease goes away. You’ll need to continue healthy lifestyle habits and take medications as prescribed by the doctor. To keep your heart healthy after angioplasty, you should:

  • Quit smoking
  • Lower your cholesterol levels
  • Eat a healthy diet that is low in saturated fat
  • Maintain a healthy weight.
