PCI - Percutaneous Coronary Intervention

Also called angioplasty, PCI encompasses a variety of procedures used to treat patients with diseased arteries of the heart. Typically, PCI is performed by threading a slender balloon-tipped catheter to a trouble spot in an artery of the heart. The balloon is then inflated, compressing the plaque and widening the narrowed coronary artery so that blood can flow more easily.
