Were you looking for information about Angioplasty? Angioplastie is a common misspelling of angioplasty.
An angioplasty is a type of medical procedure that a healthcare provider may perform to open a blocked coronary artery. In most cases, this procedure is both safe and effective. During the procedure, a stint is sometimes inserted in the artery to help keep the artery open for a longer period of time. Typically, a person who has undergone an angioplasty stays in the hospital for one or two days after the procedure. Some of the benefits of this procedure include significant relief from chest pain and a decrease in the need for heart medication.
