Angioplasty and Vascular Stent Placement

During your angiogram, the IR may find areas in the blood vessels that may be blocked or narrowed. After discussing the findings with your referring physician, it may be determined that you could benefit from angioplasty (using a balloon catheter to open up a narrowed area) and/or stent insertion (small flexible tube made of wire mesh used to hold open clogged or narrowed blood vessels). Afterwards, there is a chance that you may stay overnight in the hospital and go home the next morning.
