Angioplasty is a procedure to restore blood flow through the artery. You have angioplasty in a hospital. The doctor threads a thin tube through a blood vessel in the arm or groin up to the involved site in the artery. The tube has a tiny balloon on the end. It is also known as Percutaneous Coronary Interventions [PCI], Balloon Angioplasty, and Coronary Artery Balloon Dilation.
Replaces an abnormal or diseased heart valve with a healthy one.
Similar to angioplasty except that the catheter has a rotating shaver on its tip to cut away plaque from the artery.
Also known as CABG, pronounced “cabbage,” Coronary Artery Bypass Graft done via Open-Heart Surgery
