PTCA stands for Percutaneous Transluminal Coronary Angioplasty. Coronary artery is responsible of supplying blood to heart. If there are blockages present in coronary artery, blood flow to the heart is restricted. Like every other organ, heart too needs constant supply of oxygen rich blood to function effectively. Coronary angioplasty is conducted if blockages are detected in the coronary artery.
