Cardiology Procedures at LIMA
Angioplasty is a procedure done to remove any blockage in the heart vessels that may cause chest pain. It is done using a tube with a small balloon at its end. At the point of the block, the baloon is inflated. This clears the block and restores normal blood blow.
Most of the time Stenting is done along with angioplasty. In this procedure, a stent is placed after relieving the block. This keeps the vessel open and reduces the chance of reblock.
