About Angioplasty surgery:
Angioplasty surgery or balloon angioplasty is an endovascular procedure used for widening the obstructed or narrowed veins or arteries. This surgery is typically used for treating arterial atherosclerosis. During this surgery, an empty, collapsed balloon is passed over the wire into the obstructed locations and then inflated into a fixed size. This balloon will expand the narrowed arteries and veins within the vessel and the surrounding muscular wall. It will then open up the blood vessel to improve the blood flow. Then the balloon is deflated and withdrawn. This surgery is typically performed in a minimally invasive method.
