Intravascular Stent Placement

Intravascular Stent Placement Treatment

Intravascular stent placement is a procedure used after angioplasty that involves placing a stent in a blood vessel to keep it from narrowing again. This procedure is a treatment for vascular disease that can be performed using minimally invasive techniques with smaller incisions and less tissue damage. Through tiny incisions, interventional radiologists use balloons, stents, and medications to repair blood vessel problems. These new technologies have revolutionized the treatment of vascular disease.
