Interventional Cardiology Procedures
A stent is a small metal coil or mesh tube that is placed in a narrow artery through a catheter (a long, thin tube) to help improve blood flow to your heart. The stent permanently holds the passageway open and helps reduce the rate of restenosis (renarrowing) of the artery.
