He said the workshop was aimed at creating awareness among the doctors about the complex trans radial angioplasty. ''Angioplasty was one of the three standard treatments for coronary artery disease (CAD) - a disease in which the blood flow to the heart was restricted as the arteries, clogged with plaque deposits, harden (atherosclerosis)'', Chairman added.
