Angiography is done to check for the blockage in the arteries. However, if the blockages are small, they fix stents during the angiography test to reduce the expenses to the patient which is known as angioplasty. But, angioplasty or bypass, they do not dissolve or remove the blockages. there are good ayurvedic remedies for this. send a mail to for more information.
