Hypertension Treatment

The most common way to treat hypertension is through medication. However, in some instances, medication is not effective and procedures such as angioplasty, stenting or surgery may be considered. Angioplasty procedures increase blood flow by widening the artery with a balloon placed on the end of a catheter. Stenting widens the artery also but utilizes a permanent stent to keep the artery open.
