Is it risky to get a heart stint in a artery that already has a stent?

3 doctors agree

In brief: Depends

Stents within stents are not uncommon, but risk is more often related to technical issues of placement and location.
Skilled and experienced operators can perform these interventions safely, but each situation is different and one must ask the doctor to determine and explain the risk.
