Balloon Angioplasty

Balloon Angioplasty Treatment

Balloon angioplasty is a procedure used to open a blocked portion of an artery. With this procedure, a balloon is used to create a bigger opening in the artery to increase blood flow. Also called percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty, balloon angioplasty is used to permit more blood flow into the heart.
