 What is a Coronary Stent?   
  • A Coronary stent is a mesh tube that is used to open narrowed coronary arteries.
  • Narrowing or hardening of the arteries occurs because of the buildup of a fatty substance called plaques. The buildup of plaques occurs over time and is a condition known as atherosclerosis.
 
 Why is the procedure done?   
  • It is done to improve blood flow to the heart.
  • This procedure can improve symptoms of chest pain and shortness of breath.
  • A stent can also be placed in a weakened artery to improve blood flow and prevent the artery from bursting.
 
 How is a Coronary Stenting Procedure done?   
  • A stent may be placed in an artery as part of a Coronary Angioplasty procedure. An Angioplasty procedure involves a balloon catheter inflated in a blocked artery to widen the artery and thus allow increased blood flow through the artery.
  • A stent is a mesh tube that may then be placed in the artery to prevent it from narrowing or becoming blocked again in the future.
