Also names as the PCI, which represents for Percutaneous Coronary Intervention. Heart stent technique is constantly led together with angioplasty – balloon caterer broadens the artery, enabling for putting a stent. Over the last few years, an increasing number of patients choose to go through the coronary artery stent placement abroad owing to the advancement of medical tourism, noticing that specialists in foreign medical services are as qualified in this heart procedure as their equivalents in the homeland.

The balloon catheter is now directed to the heart, where it let out a particular kind of dye, serving to position the plaque, clots, or any other barriers to the bloodstream. Balloon catheter conveys with it a stent which is a little metal tube that can broaden to fit the walls of the blood vessel. When the balloon catheter with stent extends to the point where plaque or clot is positioned, it is blown up so as to demolish somewhat and straighten the plaque and put the heart stent, which can enlarge with the balloon before fitting the walls of the coronary artery. In such a way, the normal bloodstream is re-established. Throughout one PCI, more than one cardiac stent might be put.

Side Effects

As stated previously, heart stent practice may result in heart issues in the long period, comprising a heart attack or blood clot development in the region of the stent. Aside from this, no coronary artery state placement side effects are seen in most of the patients. 

Success Rates

In about 40% of patients, heart stents are unsuccessful to stay open, thus requiring another stent placement or even heart surgery, particularly within one year from the first one.

Before And After

Having cardiac catheterization together with stents in the heart doesn’t negatively affect patients’ life – they can appreciate the actions which were frequently difficult before, because of their heart issues.

Faq

What is a Stent? 
A stent is a metal tube which can expand with the support of the balloon catheter. It helps to retain coronary arteries open. 

Can I receive Cardiac Catheterization without a Stent? Yes, it is possible, but it proved to be highly unsuccessful – most of the patients who underwent only percutaneous coronary angioplasty had to undergo another angioplasty procedure within 6 months.
