The use of transluminal balloon angioplasty has become widespread in the treatment of cardiovascular diseases. Since critical care nurses are responsible for the assessment and management after the procedure in the critical care unit, the authors provide information on the pathophysiology and potential nursing diagnoses for these patients. In this way, the critical care nurse can support the patient before, during, and after the procedure.
