ANGIOPLASTY

An angioplasty is performed if a stenosis was observed on the angiogram.


A local anesthetic and possibly IV sedation are used.

A small catheter with a balloon at the tip inserted and inflated to stretch the narrowed area. The balloon is removed at the end of the procedure. Sometimes a stent or coil (a metal piece of mesh) is needed to provide optimal access function. The stent/coil will remain inside the fistula or graft and does not move.
