Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) at Apollo Hospitals Mumbai

Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) universally known as coronary Angioplasty or just Angioplasty is a non-surgical procedure used for the treatment of the stenotic (narrowed) coronary arteries of the heart found in coronary heart disease. These stenotic segments are due to the accumulation of the cholesterol-laden plaques that form due to atherosclerosis. PCI is typically carried out by an interventional cardiologist, while it was developed and formerly performed by interventional radiologists.
