The balloon is removed, and the stent remains in place, keeping the artery open. ...Read more

Different : Atherectomy is not better than stenting, it usually is reserved for cases when a balloon angioplasty combined with stenting, or direct stenting can not be accomplished due to the plaque burden. In those cases atherectomy is used to debulk the plaque and the best result would be if this can then be supplemented with a stenting to prevent plaque regrowth or near-term closure of the vessel. ...Read more
Very briefly.: An indwelling ureteral stent is removed in one of two ways. A quick pull on a little string to pull it out of the urethra, or by using a flexible scope to enter the bladder and pulling out the stent with forceps. Both can cause bladder discomfort and some flank pain as it is quickly removed. Some residual pain can linger for a day or two. Pain can be variable with many feeling no pain. ...Read more
