Angioplasty Study

April 4, 2010

Results of a Mayo Clinic study show the incidence of stroke or mini-stroke related to a coronary angioplasty remained steady over a 15-year period. Researchers say this is good news because physicians now are performing the artery-opening procedure on older patients who are sicker and need more complicated treatment. The study's senior author, Dr. Rajiv Gulati talks about the research.
