Percutaneos Coronary Intervention (PCI)

Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI), also known as coronary angioplasty, is a treatment to open a blocked artery. It is a non-surgical procedure that uses a thin flexible tube or a catheter to place a stent to open up blood vessels in the heart that have been narrowed by plaque buildup, a condition referred to as atherosclerosis. 

A stent is a small, metal mesh tube that expands inside a coronary artery. It helps prop the artery open, decreasing its chance of narrowing again.

Angioplasty can improve symptoms of blocked arteries, such as chest pain and shortness of breath. Healthcare providers may also use PCI as a heart attack treatment. PCI quickly opens a blocked artery, which can reduce the amount of damage to the heart.

Angioplasty is not for everyone. Discuss with your doctor which treatment is best for you. Whether you have PCI, medical therapy, or coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery depends on several factors that include the number and characteristics of the blockages that you have, your heart muscle function, your age and overall condition.

 

Similar to coronary angiograms, PCI can be performed via the femoral  (in the groin) or the radial artery (in the wrist).
