Treatment for Coronary Heart Disease

An Angioplasty is when a balloon is inserted into the artery and inflated in order to crush the fatty deposits and thus reopen the artery.

A stent is a tube inserted into the blockage and can be temporary or permanent.

Coronary Bypass surgery is when veins from other parts of the body are grafted on to the heart to improve blood flow. In the most extreme cases, a Heart Bypass is necessary.
