Spanish translation:"Reflejo óculo-angioplástico"
Explanation:
Es una expresión irónica que se refiere al médico (no al paciente), el cual es cardiólogo intervencionista.

Al visualizar lesiones coronarias en la coronariografía, algunos médicos no pueden contener el impulso de realizar una angioplastia (PTCA), aún si la lesión coronaria no era severa (y por lo tanto no requería tratamiento).

Es un reflejo entre el ojo (del médico) y su mano (que realiza la PTCA).
