This treatment involves administering radiation to a coronary artery that has narrowed after a stent has been implanted. Angioplasty is performed to gain access to the narrowed coronary artery. Radioactive material is then advanced through a catheter to the site of the blockage. Blood clots may occur at the site of radiation months after the procedure is performed.
