The Benefits of Stent Implantation

When a patient decides on Heartwell Cardiology to do their stent implantation, they decide on enduring improvement to their quality of life. This procedure benefits patients who suffer from arterial diseases by helping to alleviate limiting symptoms caused by arterial blood flow problems.

What is Stent Implantation?

First off, let us define what a stent is. A stent is a tube composed of wire mesh that’s made from metal alloy coated with a drug. 

Once placed, the stent becomes a permanent part of the artery. Stent implantation is a very common procedure that’s been around for many years and has helped improve the quality of life for many people.

Who Needs a Stent Implantation?

For those who suffer from conditions such as the following, stent implantation is worth considering:

  • Coronary artery disease
  • Peripheral artery disease
  • History of heart attack

What to Expect from a Stent Implantation

Before:

  • The goals during the consultation process for a stent implantation are as follows:
    The patient will meet with Dr. Sharma to establish overall health goals and an understanding of the disease process.
  • Dr. Sharma and the patient will work together to develop a detailed pre and post interventional plan for treating the patient’s disease.
  • There will also be a review of Dr. Sharma’s interpretation of all diagnostic studies leading up to the procedure. Ancillary studies that typically complement a stent implantation are nuclear stress tests and echocardiograms.

During:

  • Moderate sedatives are administered intravenously to encourage relaxation.
  • Dr. Sharma inserts a balloon catheter and inflates it to open the site where the artery is restricted or blocked. Then a stent is guided to the site. Sometimes, more than one stent is required.

After:

Post procedure care and recovery can vary greatly case by case. Prior to undergoing stent implantation, Dr. Sharma will inform the patient on what he expects the timeline for discharge and recovery to be.
