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.
