Placing a stent is not surgery.

I had 3 stents implanted a while ago and doing fine. The doctors told my my body had created one of it’s own to bypass a problem. Interesting.

This is a surprise given the former president’s regimen for exercise and outdoor work.

Stents sometimes are done as part of angiograms.

If the cardiologist (or surgeon) finds blockage with an angiogram (imaging procedure), then an option is to implant stents. Often, the doctor will ask for permission to implant stents when an angiogram is done.

A catheter is run to the heart and dyes are injected so that X-rays might see blockage.

During this procedure, the catheter may be used to implant a stent.

Putting a stent in the heart may be dangerous is there is a problem (implanted in wrong area).

Most people are familiar with CABG (pronounced cabbage). Doctors and nurses love to use this term for bypass surgery.

This is the bypass surgery. The CABG stands for Coronary Artery Bypass Graft.

This is the surgery where the chest has to be cracked open and the sternum cut in two.

If a doctor messes up a stent, then a surgery may be necessary to correct that (and that is known to happen).

My grandfather had a stent placed in an artery at age 90. A week later he was back to his old ball-busting self, albeit quite a bit ornery because he didn’t like being in the hospital.
