Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) or coronary angioplasty is a non-surgical method used to treat narrowed coronary arteries of the heart. Narrowing of arteries might be due to buildup of plaques that form due to atherosclerosis. Balloon or a stent is placed at the site of blockage to open the artery. This may improve symptoms of blocked arteries like shortness of breath and chest pain.
