Coronary angioplasty is a relatively safe, minimally invasive procedure that saves your life by unblocking blocked arteries. It is a surgical procedure to open the blood vessels that supply blood to your heart muscle.

Angioplasty is commonly used to treat conditions including:

  • Atherosclerosis
  • Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD)
  • Renal vascular hypertension
  • Carotid Artery Stenosis
  • Coronary Artery Disease
  • Venous narrowing


Your doctor will look at numerous factors to decide whether the procedure is right for you. This includes:

  • Your heart health and if you have already gone through any other heart procedures should be considered.
  • Symptoms severity
  • Rate of blood flow
  • Ongoing medications
  • Blockage location

Angiography and an imaging test will be used by the doctor to see which parts of your vascular system are affected and to what extent. Different areas may need to be treated differently. There are risks associated with any procedure. Common risks from coronary angioplasty are bleeding, damage to blood vessels, and the arteries in the heart. Thanks to advances in technology and medications used during the procedure that the major complications are rare.
