Angioplasty and Stent Replacement
Angioplasty is a procedure to open blocked coronary arteries. The goal of the surgery is to restore blood flow to the heart muscle without having the patient undergo open heart surgery. It is also called Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI). It is conducted by inserting a special catheter or a long – hollow tube with a tiny balloon at its tip into the blood vessel and to the blocked coronary artery. Once the catheter reached the blocked artery, the balloon is inflated at the narrowed area of the coronary artery which presses the clot blocking the artery against the sides and making more room for blood flow.
On the other hand, a stent is an expandable metal mesh coil that is inserted into the newly opened area of the artery. Once the stent has been placed, tissue will start to form over it within a few days and will be completely covered within a month. This is generally done to prevent the artery from narrowing or closing again.
