Procedures & Tests - Balloon Angioplasty

(This procedure/test may also be known as: Balloon Dilation)

Balloon angioplasty is a procedure to restore blood flow through the artery. The doctor threads a thin tube through a blood vessel in the arm or groin up to the involved site in the artery. The tube has a tiny balloon on the end. When the tube is in place, the doctor inflates the balloon to push the plaque against the wall of the artery. This widens the artery and restores blood flow.
