Coronary Angioplasty and Stents
Coronary angioplasty is a procedure used to widen blocked or narrowed arteries in the heart. Angioplasty treatment is performed using a local anesthetic and usually takes 30 minutes to 2 hours. The procedure involves temporary insertion and inflation of a tiny balloon at the blocked region to help widen the artery and reduce blockage.
Coronary angioplasty helps improve the blood supply in the heart by widening the narrowed coronary arteries and inserting a small wire mesh tube called a stent. This stent helps keep the artery open and lowers the chance of further blockage.
Angioplasty is used to treat
- Atherosclerosis or blocked arteries, the slow buildup of cholesterol in heart’s blood vessels
- Heart attack
- Narrowed and hardened arteries in older people
What are the benefits of a coronary angioplasty?
In most cases, improvement in blood flow can be seen after an angioplasty. Many people find their angina and other heart related symptoms get significantly better. A person, who has suffered a heart attack, can get an angioplasty done to lower his chances of having another heart attack and increase his chances of better survival.
