Coronary Artery Angioplasty / Stenting
At Southwestern Cardiac Arrhythmia Institute in El Paso, Dr. Lookman Lawal sometimes use coronary angioplasty and stenting, a nonsurgical treatment, to open and widen blocked or narrowed coronary arteries. This helps improve blood flow to the heart.
The coronary arteries supply your heart with blood. In people with coronary artery disease, a fatty substance called plaque builds up, narrowing or blocking the flow of blood. These blockages will eventually result in a heart attack if left untreated.
When plaque affects the coronary arteries, it’s known as coronary heart disease — a serious health condition. The buildup of plaque in the arteries is particularly threatening to your health because the coronary arteries supply the heart with fresh, oxygenated blood. Without it, the heart can’t function.
