PTCA Followed by Coronary Bypass
In extremely rare situations during a PTCA [percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty, a minimally invasive surgical procedure to open narrowed or blocked blood vessels that supply blood to the heart], closing of an artery may occur suddenly or the dislodging of a blood clot may occur in a way that blocks the artery entirely. If this occurs, a coronary bypass surgery may be required.
