My cardioligist wants me to have a cardiac catheterization and maybe a stent inserted. What do the best recent studies indicate?

In brief: CATH at 33

You are young to be needing coronary angiography and possible stenting.
You should get a clear discussion of what the doc is testing for and why he believes a stent may be indicated. If you are not comfortable get a second opinion. When indicated, stenting is very effective therapy.
