Depicting the placement of a coronary stent on a guidewire, being implanted into the wall of a diseased aretery, to increase blood flow.
Video Rating: 4 / 5
Implacing the stent hurts like the dickens but it is worth the extreem discomfort. Much better than having your chest cracked.
this is an amazing alternative to CABG, heart attacks, and worst case- stroke and death. if you are offered this you are lucky you caught it before anything worse happened.
@XBanetteX You’re scared of putting a long silver “thing” (maybe called a stent!!) in your body. Which is worse…living with the problem that requires it, or the surgery. You should grow up.
@CoolAnimeChick You should grow up.
@zoozki they dont

I had recently Stent procedure and now I am asking you, if its safe to fly on a trip to Asia from
I had these put in and I always wondered how many years will they last. Or is there a time limit.
Very helpful this animation! thanks
my dad had one of these put in. now i know how it works 😛
the cylinder thing?? that puted inside the vesel is it stain less??
does anyone know if heavy fitness, sports and exersices can harm the stent”…
Now it depends on what you call heavy fitness, sports, and exercises. Generally a reasonable fitness routine shouldn’t dislodge a stent, but here again it depends of what you call heavy. Best thing to do is to ask your cardiologist.
As ALWAYS, check with your doctor or health care professional. However, from my strictly personal experience, I have two stents implanted and engage in moderately strenous aerobics on a regular basis.
does anyone know if heavy fitness, sports and exersices can harm the stent??
No. The balloon catheter guidewire is removed after the stent is implanted.
does the first entering thin cord, which hold the stent, kept in the vessel or it is removed after stenting??
AWESOME! i know a lot of people that have had this done. i’m a nursing student and it AMAZES me the technology we have today. i’m just in awe :o)
