LP33382-0   Guidance for angioplasty
Angioplasty is the mechanical alteration of a narrowed or totally obstructed vascular lumen, generally caused by atheroma (the lesion of atherosclerosis). The term derives from the roots Angio or vessel and plasticos fit for molding. The term has come to include all manner of vascular interventions typically performed in a minimally invasive or percutaneous method. See also Sheldoectomy Most commonly, the Seldinger technique is used to cannulate a blood vessel for access. A guiding catheter is introduced into the arterial (or venous) system and advanced through the system to the location of an obstruction. This in turn is followed by introduction of a guidewire which is advanced though the guide catheter, through the obstruction and extended into the blood vessel lumen beyond the obstruction. Over the guidewire, a balloon catheter is advanced through both the guide catheter and the obstruction. Copyright Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License.

Endovascular reconstruction of an artery, which may include the removal of atheromatous plaque and/or the endothelial lining as well as simple dilatation. These are procedures performed by catheterization. When reconstruction of an artery is performed surgically, it is called ENDARTERECTOMY. Source: National Library of Medicine, MeSH 2006
