Caption: Angioplasty. Artwork showing two treatments for stenosis (narrowing) of arteries. At left is balloon angioplasty, where a balloon catheter is inserted into the affected artery and inflated to open the artery up and restore normal blood flow. At right a stent, a wire mesh tube, is inserted into the artery to keep it open. The most common cause of stenosis is atheroma, fatty deposits that thicken the inner coat of arteries.
