I have had the angioplasty procedure done 12 times total and several of the visits we're to clean out 4 of the stents I had installed in my heart arteries, with a razor tipped ballon catheter . Several of the stents were 90% clogged, possibly from my return to smoking soon after having the stents installed. It was no fun, and during the last visit, I had a spiral dissection in my left descending heart artery, that added 5 more stents to stop the tare in the artery wall, and it almost cost me my life.
My suggestion stay as far away from any form of tobacco,anytime and especially after having Angioplasty done.
