ANGIOPLASTY AND STENTING

A minimally invasive (most patients are discharged within a few hours)


Procedure to treat blockages in arteries and veins, angioplasty and/or stenting improves blood flow without painful surgical incisions or the need for a prolonged recovery.

Requiring only local anesthesia and sedation, the process is similar to the arteriogram examination. A catheter is inserted into an artery and guided via x-ray through the vascular system to the blockage. An angioplasty balloon is inflated to open a narrowed blood vessel. If the vessel experiences residual narrowing after the balloon is deflated, a flexible metal stent is inserted to keep the blood vessel open and flowing normally.
