What's new in the treatment of angina and heart attacks?
Coronary arteries may become narrow again (restenosis) after angioplasty, causing recurrent angina or even heart attacks. One way to decrease the risk of coronary artery restenosis is by deploying stents to keep the arteries open. Drug-eluting stents are able to further reduce the rate of artery restenosis by giving off a chemical that prevents scar formation tissue that could block the artery.
