What is Angioplasty?

My 64-year old dad was rushed to the hospital this morning due to a heart attack. He had low BP (70/50) and heartrate of 38 (the normal is 60 at rest). He underwent an Angioplasty procedure wherein the cardiologist inserted a stent (metal cage used to keep the artery open) because he had a collapsed artery. After two hours, the procedure was over. Praise God it was successful!

We need your continued prayers for him to have a quick and full recovery. He is still in the ICU. Thank you very much and may God bless you!
