Angioplasti

If you have a blocked artery, a healthcare provider may perform an angioplasty. This type of medical procedure allows your healthcare provider to open blocked coronary arteries, which are the arteries that provide oxygen and nutrients to your heart muscle. In many cases, an expandable device, called a stent, is inserted into your blocked artery after angioplasty to help keep the artery open for a longer period of time. Possible complications of this procedure include minor infections and temporary pain.
