Balloon Angioplasty

A balloon angioplasty is a procedure during which an interventional radiologist inserts a small balloon that is attached to a thin catheter into a blood vessel through a small nick in the skin. He then uses x-ray guidance to thread a catheter to the site of the blocked artery and inflates the balloon to open the artery. Sometimes, he may need to insert a small metal scaffold, called a stent, to keep the blood vessel open.
