Percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) - often abbreviated to angioplasty - is a procedure to re-open a narrowed heart artery by inflating a tiny balloon in the narrowed segments.
A successful angioplasty brings relief from angina and can make a heart attack less likely. For more information on coronary angioplasty and stenting visit our treatment page.
