Stent Placement is a treatment for narrowed or blocked arteries and veins in patients with coronary artery disease (heart attack, angina), peripheral artery disease, and carotid artery disease.
Stents can be placed in the coronary arteries (of the heart), carotid arteries (of the neck), and other peripheral arteries (legs and arms).
