Angioplasty is a method of treating blocked blood vessels. It is considered better than most other medical therapies because it is a less invasive procedure. Angioplasty may be recommended for patients with heart conditions such as atherosclerosis. Before a patient is considered fit for an angioplasty, they must have undergone tests such as X-rays, urinalysis and blood tests to be sure it is the right treatment and that the patient has a good chance of an improved treatment outcome. Before going for an angioplasty, it is required that patients follow certain diets and drug regimens such as the use of aspirin to manage pain and other antiplatelets to support opening blood vessels that supply circulation which is a life-saving measure.
