Drugs More Effective Than Angioplasty in the Case of Heart-patients
...pass, is a non-surgical procedure to open a blocked artery, usually by inserting a wire mesh tube called a stent. Physicians thread a catheter with a deflated

Angioplasty is a minimally invasive procedure, during which a tiny deflated
