What Is Angioplasty?
Angioplasty is a minimally invasive procedure that uses a special X-ray (Fluoroscopy) to guide a balloon-tipped catheter (narrow tube) into an artery and open up a narrowed or blocked blood vessel by inflating the balloon. Many times a small wire mesh, called a stent, is positioned in the newly opened artery to prevent it from narrowing or closing again.
