Angioplasty has rapidly become one of the most common procedures used to reduce a blockage in a coronary artery. The medical term for it is percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty and it almost always involves the insertion of a stent as part of a catheterization procedure. Angioplasty is most commonly used in the coronary arteries.

During the insertion of the catheter and expansion of the balloon to make room for the stent, a number of serious medical problems can occur, including tearing and puncture of the arterial lining and damage to the heart valves. In addition, the compressed plaque causing the blockage is not completely removed and can release into the arteries.

Injuries resulting from mistakes in angioplasty procedures can cause serious heart problems that can require major coronary surgery and possibly death. If you or a loved one suffered a medical problem associated with angioplasty, contact the medical malpractice law firm of Miller & Wagner, LLP, in Portland for a free consultation.
