How Many Stents Can You Put In A Heart
Yes: To be accurate, you have coronary artery disease, usually caused by buildup of cholesterol affecting the blood flow to the heart muscle. Without treatment this can lead to a heart attack. The stent is placed to keep the blocked portion of the artery open and improve blood flow. You may notice less angina or other symptoms afterwards.
I'm not certain: That I understand this question. Do you mean is it common to itch at the location where the catheter was inserted during your angiogram and stent placement? In that case I imagine it would be possible, but not common. If you are allergic to any of the materials that are in contact with the involved skin, then I would expect itching for certain. Look to see if you have a rash and call your doctor.See 1 more doctor answer

Will having a stent put in your heart hurt while the procedure is done? My mom said having her stents hurt. Others say doesn't hurt.
It can hurt: Because when putting in a stent a balloon is temporarily inflated in your artery that briefly cuts off blood flow, people can experience pain or angina during the procedure. Doesn't always occur, but not worrisome. Also, for several days after the procedure people often get twinges of chest pain likely due to focusing on symptoms, as well as transient dysfunction of the artery lining.
My mom is going in tomorrow to have a stent put in her heart or arteries. Is this a dangerous procedure?
Yes, it is.: Coronary stent risk is variable, but mortality risk is about 1 to 3 per hundred on average. Just make sure her cardiologist discusses the specific risks with you. She needs to balance the risks and potential benefits of having a stent or having bypass surgery or using medications. Her cardiologist is the best person to explain it.

How can a heart artery be unclog after a stent was put in and 18 months later is found totaly clogged?
Common: The plaque has developed and fills or partially fills a segment of the coronary artery. It is balloon dilated (not removed or bypassed) and stented with a mesh device. More plaque extrudes or develops on the same or nearby area and occludes the vessel.
Can you tell me if a friend waited 6.5 hrs. In the ER with staff knowing he had a heart attack before stent was put in, is that okay?
Depends: Depends on history, presentation, physical exam, bloodwork and ecg. There are certain types of heart attacks that should be attended to emergently/urgently and others that could wait hours to perhaps days before cardiac procedure is done. Medical therapy should be given to everybody.See 1 more doctor answer
