Patient being prepared for angioplasty : Stock Photo
Angioplasty is a technique used to widen the narrowing in a heart artery without surgery. Angioplasty is to position a catheter with a small inflatable balloon on the end within the narrowed section of the artery. The balloon is then inflated, which pushes outward against the narrowing and surrounding wall of the artery. The inflated balloon opens the narrowed artery.
