Non-Invasive Cardiovascular Testing | Invasive Cardiac Procedures
When a coronary angiogram reveals significant coronary artery disease, the treatment options include medical management, percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) – namely stenting, or open heart surgery to perform bypass surgery.
A stent is a small metal device (appears similar to the metal spring within a retractable ball point pen). During coronary stenting, the stent is advanced into the coronary artery The stent will then act like scaffolding and hold the artery wide open, allowing improved circulation through that area of the artery, and subsequently through your heart and your entire body. You will receive an anesthetic before the procedure, and can go home after a brief rest and recovery period.
