There are so many treatment options available to people with heart conditions. Among them, angioplasty is probably the most familiar and recognized form of treatment with people as well as doctors alike. The delicate process involves identifying a blockage in a vessel by injecting dye under an X-ray and then opening up the blockage with a stent.
If you are dealing with angina or chest pain, then angioplasty can help you to empower better self-manage your chronic conditions. Angioplasty is often used for patients suffering from a sudden heart attack. It helps in relieving symptoms among more stable patients who experience chest discomfort or angina due to coronary artery disease.
Angioplasty isn’t for everyone. If the main artery that brings blood to the left side of your heart is narrow, if your heart muscle is weak or if you have multiple diseased blood vessels, then coronary artery bypass surgery may be a better option than angioplasty.
