Expert Answer

The coronary angiogram is the technique to visualize the blood vessels of the heart. It uses X-rays to diagnose the condition of the blood vessels. In the given angiogram, the artery is blocked by a plaque of cholesterol, which is being cracked by inserted the balloon catheter. The inflated balloon catheter would crack the plaque and restore the lumen of the artery. After this procedure, the mesh-like stent is placed to prevent the lumen of the artery from narrowing again.

Hence, the correct answer is 'It is coronary artery which is blocked by a plaque and the same is being cracked'
