Coronary Artery Stenting

A stent is a stainless steel tube that is used to support weakened or narrowed arteries. The process of placing a stent in a coronary artery is called coronary artery stenting.

In coronary artery disease, the arteries of the heart are clogged by plaque. In such cases, blood supply to the heart muscles or the myocardium is lowered. To open the artery and to keep it open, a stent may be placed. The procedure is also called percutaneous coronary intervention. Stents reduce chest pain and have been known to increase the survival rate in case of a heart attack. Stents may either be bare metal stents, drug eluting stents or covered stents. The stents are placed by angioplasty.
