Peripheral artery angioplasty (say "puh-RIFF-er-rull AR-ter-ree ANN-jee-oh-plass-tee") is a procedure to help blood flow better. The procedure widens or opens narrowed blocked arteries, typically in the pelvis or legs. This may help with pain or help wounds heal better.

Carotid angioplasty and stenting involves the carotid artery. During the procedure, doctors use a thin tube with a balloon at its tip to open up the artery. The carotid arteries send oxygen-rich blood to your brain. A condition called carotid artery stenosis means that one or both of these arteries are narrowed.
Provider's guide to diagnose and code PAD Peripheral Artery Disease (ICD-10 code I73. 9) is estimated to affect 12 to 20% of Americans age 65 and older with as many as 75% of that group being asymptomatic (Rogers et al, 2011).
The term "angioplasty" means using a balloon to stretch open a narrowed or blocked artery. However, most modern angioplasty procedures also involve inserting a short wire-mesh tube, called a stent, into the artery during the procedure. The stent is left in place permanently to allow blood to flow more freely.
Insert a small device that looks like a tiny balloon inside your artery. Inflate the balloon and compress the plaque outward on the walls of the artery to opens it, allowing for better blood flow. Insert a stent — a mesh tube made of metal. The stent serves as a permanent metal scaffold to keep the artery open.
Percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) is a procedure that can open up a blocked blood vessel using a small, flexible plastic tube, or catheter, with a "balloon" at the end of it. When the tube is in place, it inflates to open the blood vessel, or artery, so that normal blood flow is restored.

Follow-up. The difference between aftercare and follow-up is the type of care the physician renders. Aftercare implies the physician is providing related treatment for the patient after a surgery or procedure. Follow-up, on the other hand, is surveillance of the patient to make sure all is going well.
Atherosclerotic stenosis of intra-cranial arteries is usually treated with medication (e.g., acetyl salicylic acid, clopidogrel, and ticlopidine). It has also been reported recently that cilostazol, a phosphodiesterase inhibitor, can prevent the progression of intra-cranial arterial stenosis (Kwon et al, 2005). When pharmacotherapies fail to improve symptoms, balloon angioplasty has been reported to be useful. However, this surgical procedure is associated with a significant risk of complications (e.g., acute occlusion or symptomatic dissection, re-stenosis, and stroke). It has also been reported that stenting could reduce the rate of re-stenosis following balloon angioplasty of intra-cranial arteries. However, the clinical benefit of balloon angioplasty, with or without stenting, has not been firmly established.
Liang and colleagues (2019) noted that the use of the Pipeline embolization device (PED) for posterior circulation aneurysms is controversial . In a meta-analysis, these researchers examined the safety and efficacy of PED for these aneurysms; meta-regression was used to identify predictors for incomplete aneurysm occlusion and procedure-related complications. PubMed, Web of Science, and OVID databases were searched to identify all published references evaluating the treatment effect of PED for posterior circulation aneurysms. Only studies written in English that reported original data and included greater than 10 cases were considered for inclusion. Patient demographics, aneurysm characteristics, angiographic outcomes, and clinical outcomes were extracted. A random-effects model was adopted to pool the obliteration rates and complication rates across selected studies. Finally, these investigators conducted meta-regression analysis to identify predictors of angiographic outcomes. A total of 12 studies including 358 patients with 365 aneurysms were included. The pooled complete aneurysm obliteration rate was 82 % (95 % CI: 73 % to 90 %), and pooled procedure-related complication rate was 18 % (95 % CI 14 % to 22 %). Increasing age predicted incomplete obliteration of aneurysms after PED treatment in these patients (p = 0.01). The authors concluded that PED is an alternative to treat intra-cranial aneurysms of the posterior circulation, achieving high complete occlusion rates, but it is less effective in elderly patients. The risk of procedure-related complications is not negligible. These researchers stated that further larger, long-term follow-up studies are needed before definitive conclusions can be drawn.
Angioplasty and stenting of carotid and vertebral lesions represents a promising therapeutic option in patients at increased risk for surgical endarterectomy. Endarterectomy has several limitations. Among them, patients with severe coronary artery disease show a 3-fold increase in morbidity and mortality due to cardiac complications of the procedure. Similarly, the risk of endarterectomy is increased in patients with carotid lesions that, due to their anatomic location, are difficult to approach surgically. In addition, the risk of endarterectomy is increased in patients having previous cervical radiotherapy, previous endarterectomy, or lesions located or extending distally in the internal carotid artery.
Aetna considers percutaneous transluminal angioplasty of the extra-cranial carotid arteries, with or without stent implantation and embolic protection, medically necessary in symptomatic individuals with at least 50 % stenosis of the carotid artery.
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ National Coverage Determination for "Extracranial-Intracranial (EC-IC) Arterial Bypass Surgery" (CMS, 1991) stated that "EC-IC arterial bypass surgery is not a covered procedure when it is performed as a treatment for ischemic cerebrovascular disease of the carotid or middle cerebral arteries, which includes the treatment or prevention of strokes. The premise that this procedure which bypasses narrowed arterial segments improves the blood supply to the brain and reduces the risk of having a stroke has not been demonstrated to be any more effective than no surgical intervention. Accordingly, EC-IC arterial bypass surgery is not considered reasonable and necessary within the meaning of §1862 (a) (1) of the Act when it is performed as a treatment for ischemic cerebrovascular disease of the carotid or middle cerebral arteries".
Liang and colleagues (2019) stated that trans-femoral carotid stenting has struggled to become a suitable alternative to carotid endarterectomy for the treatment of carotid disease because of higher peri-operative stroke risks, even with use of embolic protection devices. To reduce the peri-operative stroke rates associated with carotid stenting, several advancements in stent design, embolic protection systems, and technical approaches have been developed. Trans-carotid artery revascularization (TCAR) was also recently introduced as a novel carotid artery stenting option that circumvents several of the high embolic-risk maneuvers found in trans-femoral carotid stenting and employs a flow reversal system that provides continuous embolic protection throughout the procedure. Early results from this technique have shown low stroke/death rates comparable CEA while maintaining the minimally invasive benefits of carotid stenting. The authors concluded that TCAR has a strong potential to become the preferred method of carotid stenting in the near future and may challenge CEA as the preferred carotid artery revascularization method.
