Radiation brachytherapy is a catheterization procedure used to halt the progression of blockages within coronary arteries. The catheter delivers a precise dosage of radiation to the arterial wall to prevent new blockages from developing. It is usually performed if stenting has not been able to keep the artery open.

As with other catheter-assisted procedures, radiation brachytherapy is not an open heart procedure. Instead, the catheter is inserted through an artery in the groin area and threaded up to the affected region of the heart.
