Renal Angioplasty

Renal angioplasty is a procedure performed to improve blood flow to the kidney. A balloon catheter is inserted through an artery (usually through the femoral artery in the groin area) and passed through your bloodstream to the narrowed artery in the kidney. The balloon is inflated to help redistribute the fat deposits within the inner walls of the artery, improving the blood flow.
