No need to cut for one stent (preventative).

Catheters for stents usually enter through the groin area. Some doctors call it a percutaneous procedure.

I think the distinction for heart surgery is whether they crack open the chest. There's no reason to open the chest to place a catheter. There are optional entry points in the upper body which are percutaneous, too.
