Coronary angioplasty & stenting

This is a treatment for narrowed heart arteries, which cause angina.  It is performed in the same way as an angiogram from the leg or wrist, avoiding the need for open-heart surgery.  A tiny balloon is used to stretch open the narrowed or blocked artery and following this a metal coil (stent) is stretched open and left behind in the artery to provide a scaffold to reduce the chance of the artery re-narrowing.
