Why is stenting not beneficial?

Stenting Not Benificial

New findings from a large clinical trial shows that patients with stable coronary artery disease treated with stents and optimal medical therapy fare no better than those who receive optimal medical therapy.

Currently, more than 1 million stent procedures are performed in the United States with up to 85% of these interventions are carried out on patients with stable coronary artery disease. As Steven Nissen, MD, immediate past president of the American College of Cardiology stated, this study…”brings us back to earth and gets rid of the irrational exuberance that surrounds stenting.”
