A plea against stent overuse and in favour of angioplasty

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Simple balloon angioplasty can achieve excellent results and should be used more frequently in patients with chest pain due to coronary artery obstructions, while stents should only be used when really needed.
