This 3D medical animation depicts a circumflex coronary artery blockage confirmed by angiogram test, followed by a balloon angioplasty and stent repair. The animation begins by zooming into a coronary artery on the heart, and showing the buildup of plaque. Afterward, a guidewire (guy wire) and catheter with contrast dye are inserted into a blood vessel in the groin, and threaded up to the coronary vessels. As the dye is released, the location of the coronary artery blockage is revealed. Next, a balloon and stent are used to open the blocked artery and resume normal blood flow.
