What is Stenting?
Stenting is an advanced arterial procedure that involves using a small mesh tube to keep a closed off blood vessel open for the long-term. Patients typically undergo this procedure in addition to angioplasty and atherectomy
What are the Benefits of Stenting?
There are many benefits of receiving a stent at Precision Vascular, including:
- Minimally invasive treatment
- Greatly reduces the chance of the blockage reoccurring
- Can be performed with atherectomy and angioplasty
- Minimal downtime and recovery period
What Can I Expect During My Stenting?
Your stenting procedure will be performed at your local state-of-the-art Precision Vascular location by one of our expert board-certified specialists. Before your stenting begins, your specialist will administer an anesthetic to your treatment area. This is to ensure you remain as comfortable as possible throughout your procedure. Once numb, a small incision will either be made in the arm or the groin. A catheter will then be inserted into the body through this small incision and let up to the affected artery. At this time, angioplasty and an atherectomy may take place. The stent will then be placed into the affected blood vessel and the catheter will carefully be removed.
What Can I Expect After My Stenting?
Following your stenting procedure, you may notice swelling, bruising, and tenderness around the site of your incision. This is normal and side effects typically resolve on their own within a few days of treatment. Most patients report returning to their normal daily activities about seven to 10 days following their stenting. Patients are typically able to make a full recovery within about eight weeks of treatment. Your specialist will provide you with detailed post-operative care instructions prior to your treatment, so you can better know what to expect during your recovery.
Is Stenting Right for Me?
If you have been diagnosed with arterial disease and are receiving angioplasty, stenting may also be right for you. The best way to find out if stenting is right for you is to schedule a private consultation with one of our board-certified specialists. They'll be happy to sit down with you, listen to your concerns, assess your veins' condition, and develop a fully personalized treatment plan to help you achieve your ultimate health goals.
How Much Does Stenting Cost?
The cost of your stenting will vary depending on the type of treatment you receive, the extent of treatment needed to achieve your desired results, and your health insurance coverage. To get a better idea of how much your stenting will cost, we encourage you to come in for a private consultation with one of our doctors.
