She had some blockages in her coronary arteries and aorta. They angioplastied some, bu= t she will have to have more surgery to clear the remainder in her aorta. S= he is doing better though. Is the verbal usage of angioplasty a coinage, or elsewhere attested? It seems like a pretty natural jump but this is the first I've seen or heard= of it.
