ANGIOPLASTY PRESENTATION - Wednesday, May 17, 2006 at 10:00 am at the Callahan Center. Angioplasty is a medical procedure in which a balloon is used to open narrowed or blocked blood vessels of the heart, the so called, coronary arteries. It is not considered to be a type of surgery. Blockages or narrowed arteries are caused by fat and cholesterol that can accumulate on the inside of the artery to form deposits called plaque. Since these arteries supply circulation to the heart muscle itself, this narrowing or blockage can be quite serious. In many cases, if the blockage is not too severe, a balloon catheter may be used to open theses arteries. This procedure would be done as an alternative to open heart surgery which is a serious operation. (Source: MEDLINEPLUS 2006). Come and learn more about this valuable, lifesaving procedure. Please call the Center at 508-532-5980 to reserve a seat!
