In brief: No

Chelation therapy (edta) has never been shown to reduce the risk of heart disease or prevent cholesterol deposits.
Coronary stents are used to treat blocked arteries. Aspirin and Plavix (clopidogrel) are used to prevent the stent from clotting. The only treatments that have been shown to reduce the risk of coronary events are statins (cholesterol meds) and aspirin.
