  • Coronary Procedures & Interventions

    Coronary angioplasty, also known as percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), is a procedure done to open clogged arteries. It’s often combined with the placement of a permanent stent; a small wire mesh tube that helps prop open the artery and decrease the chance of it narrowing again. This procedure, and others like it, is a non-surgical procedure done by the cardiologists at Metro Heart & Vascular, who are board-certified in emergent coronary interventions.

    The goal of these treatments is to restore blood flow to the heart for people who are experiencing a heart attack. A heart attack is the result of plaque build-up in the coronary arteries (atherosclerosis). As plaque builds it blocks the flow of oxygen-rich blood to the heart. During a heart attack, one of these plaques can rupture, forming a blood clot which can further block blood flow through the artery. If blood flow can be restored in time, damage to the heart can be limited or prevented altogether.
