This video, created by Nucleus Medical Media, shows a coronary angioplasty, also called a percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) or simply a balloon angioplasty, is performed to correct a blocked artery in the heart. The patient lies on a testing table while contrast dye is injected into the arteries of the heart, showing the location of the blockage. A guide wire is then moved through the lumen of the blood vessel, followed by a balloon and stent mechanism. The balloon inflates, putting the metal stent in place, so that the lumen of the artery is open and the red blood cells can flow freely.
