  1. Peripheral Angioplasty
  2. Carotid artery Angioplasty
  3. PTA of the femoral artery
  4. Stent implantation
  5. Laser Angioplasty [Excimer laser coronary angioplasty-ELCA]

  5. Short hospitalization
  6. Widens the narrowed blood vessels or arteries

What are the indications of Angioplasty?

What are the steps involved in Angioplasty?

Following steps are involved in Angioplasty:

  1. The patient will be sedated and then, a catheter or small tube will be inserted into the large artery.
  2. The catheter is slowly directed throughout the artery until the tip approaches the vessel that needed to be checked.
  3. Now, the contrast dye is injected into the blood vessel through the catheter, and the X-rays of the blood vessels will be taken.
  4. These X-ray images may be examined by the doctor and a small balloon at the end of the catheter will be inflated and widens the narrowed artery.
  5. After widening the artery, the balloon will be deflated. In a few cases, a stent will be placed in the obstructed artery for normal blood flow.
