Angioplasty - Definition


Definition


Angioplasty is a medical and surgical operation done generally under local anesthetic. It is mainly recommended in the case of a constriction of the coronary arteries (stenosis) during the course of an angiography of the coronary vessels called a coronarography. Angioplasty consists of introducing a catheter into the blood vessel, vein, or artery of a patient in order to repair it. A small balloon is placed in the artery and is then inflated to widen it. A device is left at the location of the constriction to make the widening permanent. Performing a coronary angioplasty by entering through the femoral artery is the most common.
