Stents: What, When, Who?

The word stent is only used in cardiology circles but these small devices are used to treat well over a million people every year. For over a decade, stents have largely replaced using a balloon alone to unblock arteries (called PTCA). The history of stents is interesting and the proper use of stents is controversial. Everyone should know some information about stents and then work very hard to avoid them!
