Question

Why is an angioplasty an incorrect treatment for an aneurysm?

2 Answer

  • Angioplasty is the technique of mechanically widening narrowed or obstructed arteries. This is the process of putting a balloon in your arteries to widen it for blood flow. So Angioplasty would not be the best way to treat an aneurysm because an aneurysm is a bubble full of blood. Angioplasty would not work.
  • An angioplasty may rupture the blood vessel wall.
