Do women get angioplasty?

Yes, women do undergo angioplasty procedures. Studies have shown that women are less likely to receive invasive cardiac procedures such as angioplasty compared to men, but this gap has been narrowing over time. Research indicates that women who undergo angioplasty have similar outcomes to men in terms of procedural success and long-term survival. It is important for healthcare providers to ensure equitable access to angioplasty and other cardiac interventions for both men and women to optimize outcomes in the management of coronary artery disease.
