Man with Heart Disease, Illustration

medical illustration of Sequence illustrating the steps of angioplasty with stenting in an artery suffering from Atherosclerosis. A deflated balloon guides the stent into the narrowed artery. The balloon is inflated, crushing the plaque into the walls of the artery and expanding the stent. The balloon is deflated and removed leaving the stent in place holding the passageway open for easy blood flow.
Next medical illustration of Illustration of a coronary bypass. When the coronary artery is obstructed by a plaque of atheroma (the yellow area of the vessel in inset), the blood can not circulate correctly to irrigate the heart. A bypass is undertaken with a transplantation of a vessel (part of an artery or vein) from the aorta to the affected coronary artery, so as to deviate the coronary circulation.
