HEALTH MATTERS: Angioplasty most often an appropriate and justified procedure, studyQ. My husband recently suffered a small heart attack and had an angioplasty performed and a stent inserted soon after his symptoms began. But I just read a news report about a recent investigation that suggested that almost half of the angioplasties performed may not be necessary. Do you think that my husband really needed it?
