Can a person with three bare metal heart stents be shocked by a defibrillator soon after stent placement. Could holes in heart be caused by blowout?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Unlikely

"holes" in the heart may be the consequence of heart attacks but not from defibrillator discharges.
Also they usually happen during/after the first heart attack.
