    What is PCI?

    Percutaneous Coronary Intervention, or PCI, refers to coronary angioplasty and other interventions, such as stenting, in which interventional cardiologists perform therapeutic medical procedures within the arteries. PCI is less invasive than open heart surgeries, such as cardiac bypass surgery (CABG).
