Stents shine again as heart attack treatment

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Dutch researchers are the latest to back the use of stents - tiny stainless steel coils - to prop open the coronary arteries of heart attack patients and restore blood flow to the heart. They think that the procedure should be used instead of angioplasty in certain patients because they cause fewer repeat heart attacks and result in fewer treatments to tackle further blockages in the blood vessels.
