What is Stent Placement?

  • A Stent is a metal tube that is placed inside the artery to prevent blockage of the artery. The stent may be coated with a drug (called a drug-eluting stent). This type of stent may lower the chance of the artery closing back up in the future. Currently, drug-eluting stents are used in certain situations.
     
  • Coronary artery stent is placed inside the artery and prevents it to get narrowed up again. It is a small metal mesh tube and is designed to support the artery walls and prevents the blockage of blood flow. It is placed after the angioplasty.

 

Why Angioplasty is performed?

Angioplasty is commonly done when plaque (a fatty substance) attaches to the walls of an artery. Atherosclerosis is the term that is used to describe the condition of blockage of blood vessels. 

Some of the common symptoms are:

  • Fatigue 
  • Shortness of breath 
  • Weakening of legs muscles due to lack of circulation of blood
  • Persistent chest pain which cannot be controlled by medications
  • High cholesterol levels 
  • Heart attack

 

Procedure 

  • The procedure is performed under local anesthesia and the patient does not eat or drink anything for 6- 8 hours before the procedure
  • A flexible tube known as a catheter is placed into an artery. Sometimes catheter is placed in arm/wrist/groin area.
  • Live X-ray pictures (fluoroscopy ) are used to guide the catheter up into the heart and arteries. 
  • Liquid contrast dye is used to highlight the blood flow through the arteries. It helps to identify any blockages in the blood vessels that lead to heart.
  • Guide wire is moved into and across the blockage. Balloon catheter is pushed over the guide wire and into the blockage. Balloon on the end is blown-up which help open the blocked vessel and restore the blood flow to the heart.
  • A wire mesh tube (stent) may then be placed in this blocked area. The stent is inserted along with the balloon catheter. It expands when the balloon is inflated. The stent is left there to help keep the artery open.  The stent may be coated with a drug (called a drug-eluting stent). This type of stent may lower the chance of the artery closing back up in the future. 

 

Side effects 

The side effects associated with the Angioplasty include:

  • Bleeding 
  • Blockage of other blood vessels 
  • Blood clot
  • Heart attack 
  • Problem in breathing 
  • Allergic reaction from dye 
  • Infection 
  • Stroke (rare)
  • Seizure (rare)
     

Precautions after surgery

  • Only take the medicines prescribed by the doctor
  • Avoid brisk exercise or running just after the surgery 
  • Doctor shall advise medicines to avoid the blood clotting and it will help the stent to adjust
  • Drink plenty of fluids 
  • Take balanced diet and eat healthy food
  • Quit smoking
  • Avoid lazy lifestyle and perform mild physical activities as recommended by the surgeon
