Coronary Angioplasty is the surgical procedure performed to widen blocked or narrowed coronary arteries. Coronary angioplasty is sometimes known as percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty or percutaneous coronary intervention.
The coronary arteries
Like all organs in the body, the heart needs a constant supply of blood - this is supplied by two large blood vessels called the left and the right coronary arteries. In older people, these arteries can become narrowed and hardened. Hardening of the coronary arteries can result in Angina, a syndrome (collection of symptoms caused by an underlying health condition), caused when the supply of oxygen-rich blood to the heart becomes restricted.
The most common symptom of angina is chest pain, which is usually triggered by physical activity. While many cases of angina can be treated with medication, severe symptoms of angina may require a coronary angioplasty to restore the blood supply to the heart.
Coronary angioplasties are also often used as an as emergency treatment following a heart attack.

Additional factors to consider:
1. Recovery time and Risks: You will normally be able to leave hospital the day after having a coronary angioplasty. Arrange for a friend or family member to take you home.
Before leaving hospital, you will be told about any medication that you need to take (see below) and you may receive advice about improving your diet and lifestyle. You will also be given a date for a follow-up appointment to check on your progress.
You may have a bruise under the skin where the catheter was put in. This is not serious, but it may be sore for a few days. Occasionally, the small wound where the catheter was inserted can become infected. Keep an eye on the wound to check that it is healing properly. Tell your Doctor if it becomes red and sore.
After having a coronary angioplasty, avoid doing any heavy lifting for about a week or until the small wound from the catheter has healed.
If you have had a planned coronary angioplasty, you should be able to resume your normal activities within a week. However, if you have had an emergency angioplasty following a heart attack, it may be several weeks or months before you recover fully. Most people need to take blood-thinning medication for at least six months after having an angioplasty
2. Patient reviews: The vast majority of patients are extremely happy with not only the results of the procedure but with the entire process leading up to and following the surgery.
