Angioplasty uses a medical balloon to widen blocked arteries. The balloon puts pressure on the inner wall of the arteries, causing them to widen and open. It improves blood flow. Angioplasty prevents the artery from narrowing again. In this, a Mater's stent is inserted to prevent the arteries from narrowing again. Apart from the heart, angioplasty of these organs is also done.

  • Main artery of the heart
  • Artery of hips or pelvis
  • femoral artery
  • Posterior knee artery
