Angioplasty is the most typical treatment for arteriosclerosis.This is TRUE
The most common surgical arteriosclerosis treatment is angioplasty, which involves inserting a catheter into the clogged artery and inflating a balloon to widen it. A metal stent is placed in the artery to prevent it from narrowing again. If cholesterol buildup is severe, an open surgery to scrape it away and repair the arterial wall may be necessary. A final option for a severely damaged artery is bypass surgery, where a new biological or artificial blood vessel is transplanted into the chest.
