About Stent Placement
Stent placement is a specialized “pinhole” technique used by imaging and interventional vascular physicians where a specialized cylindrical expansile mesh is introduced into the narrowed vessel. The stent is either self-expanding or expanded with a balloon causing the vessel to stay open. Often this is used in conjunction with angioplasty and atherectomy.
What are The Benefits Of Stent Placement?
Stent placement is a “pinhole” procedure performed by imaging and interventional specialists whereby a tiny, minute cylindrical mesh is advanced into a region of narrowing. This cylindrical tube is opened up holding the vessel open. The benefits to stent placement include:
- Minimally invasive “pinhole” procedure
- Speedy recovery
- Treatment of narrowed arteries and veins that may be associated with peripheral arterial disease, May Thurner or nutcracker syndrome
