Washington: Angioplasty with medication-coated stents report favourable long-term outcomes for low-risk heart patients rather than bypass surgery, according to a new study. A more minimally invasive procedure than surgery, angioplasty is performed by snaking a tiny wire up through an artery in the groin to the blocked area of the heart. The clogged artery is cleaned out, and a stent — a tiny wire-mesh tube — is placed in the artery to help keep it open, allowing blood to flow freely through the heart again.
