Angioplasty/Vascular stent

Angioplasty is insertion of balloon catheter into a narrowed blood vessel. The balloon is inflated for a few seconds dilating the vessel and restoring the blood flow.

a vascular stent is sometimes after dilatation, the blood flow is still inadequate and metallic prosthesis needs to be inserted into the vessel in order to keep it open. These procedures are performed by the specially trained radiologist or vascular surgeon who will discuss the options with you.
