Coronary Angioplasty

Coronary Angioplasty at Yorkshire Clinic

Coronary angioplasty uses a balloon to open up narrowed or blocked arteries in your heart. It lets blood flow more easily to your heart and supplies the oxygen it needs.

A coronary angioplasty treats angina symptoms and is an emergency treatment for a heart attack.

Some people have a build-up of fatty deposits in their coronary artery walls, called atheroma or atherosclerotic plaque. Coronary arteries are the main blood vessels that supply your heart with the oxygen it needs. If these arteries become narrowed or blocked, your heart muscle may not get enough oxygen which can lead to angina or a heart attack.

A coronary angioplasty opens narrowed or blocked arteries caused by coronary artery disease (CAD), using a balloon and lets blood go through them more easily. Sometimes a metal scaffold, called a stent, is then placed in the artery to keep it open. It is often coated in a drug that reduces the risk of your artery becoming blocked again. Angioplasty and stenting are types of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI).

You can access expert cardiologists and will benefit from a convenient appointment without having to wait at our Ramsay hospitals. 

When you visit one of our hospitals for your coronary angioplasty you can rest assured that we follow strict infection control protocols for you your safety.
