I have undergone angioplasty stent three days back. Since then I am having stiff neck on left side and pain inside the skull on left side. Is there anything wrong with angioplasty done?

Hi. Welcome to Healthcaremagic

The neck pain probably from position during surgery. It is not a complication of angioplasty. I recommend muscle relaxants, pain medicines, heat packs for 3-4 days.

Thanks for your answer. The angioplasty stent placement was done through right arm artery. Is this stiff neck and pain in the skull due to this procedure?
