Coronary stenting is a medical procedure used to treat coronary artery disease (CAD) by opening up blocked or narrowed arteries in the heart. During this procedure, a small, metal mesh tube called a stent is inserted into the blocked or narrowed area of the artery to help keep it open and restore blood flow to the heart.
The stent is typically inserted using a catheter, which is a long, thin tube that's inserted into a blood vessel in the arm, groin, or neck and guided to the blocked artery in the heart. Once the catheter is in place, a small balloon on the end is inflated, which pushes the plaque or blockage against the walls of the artery and opens it up. The stent is then placed in the affected area to help keep the artery open and prevent it from collapsing or becoming blocked again.
At Sterling Hospital Gurukul Ahmedabad, we use the latest technologies and techniques to perform coronary stenting procedures. Our team of experienced cardiologists and cardiac surgeons work closely with each patient to develop a personalized treatment plan based on their individual needs and medical history.
Coronary stenting is a safe and effective treatment option for many patients with CAD. It can help relieve symptoms such as chest pain, improve blood flow to the heart, and reduce the risk of heart attack or other complications. If you have been diagnosed with CAD or are experiencing symptoms such as chest pain or shortness of breath, it's important to talk to your doctor about your treatment options, including coronary stenting.
