This Medical Video:
This video depicts how a stent is placed in the coronary artieries.
We first place a guiding wire in the heart artery through a
catheter, usually from the groin. Then the stent is inflated by a
balloon in the artery, which is then removed. The stent remains
permanently. Blood thinners, aspirin and plavix, are both required
after a stent is placed in your heart artery.
