What is Angioplasty?
When one of the arteries in the heart gets blocked, it is treated by a procedure called angioplasty. In this procedure, a stent is placed in the artery to clear the blockage. This gets the blood flowing into the artery again.
What causes a blockage in an artery?
Arteries carry blood from the heart to other parts of the body. Over time, they accumulate plaque which is made of fat deposits, calcium, cholesterol and other wastes.
Having high blood pressure, eating foods high in cholesterol, diabetes and smoking increase the chances of accumulation of plaque in the arteries.
What are the symptoms that indicate the need for coronary angioplasty?
As plaque slowly builds up in an artery, there are no signs of it. But, when the artery gets blocked, people experience:
Shortness of breath
Tightness in the chest
