What is 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
