Percutaneous Coronary Intervention for Patients with Vascular Disease

In this video, Dr. Ed Harlamert—interventional cardiologist at Indiana University Health—describes how balloon angioplasty and drug-coated stents are used in percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). PCI is performed in a patient who has a build-up of plaque (ie, cholesterol) in his or her artery. Hospital stays are typically 24 hours, there are no incisions involved, very few side effects, and a 95% success rate. IU Health can handle even those patients who have complex cases.
