As people begin to age, they may start experiencing pain in their joints and bones. This pain can be acute, especially if someone suffers a traumatic injury in an accident or if their joints or bones are degenerating due to a chronic condition. In such a case, they may need to consult an orthopaedic surgeon to determine the course of treatment.

Stent placement is a common procedure that helps treat Coronary Artery Diseases. In this procedure, the interventional cardiologist or operator inserts a stent (a hollow cylindrical metallic mesh) to hold a coronary artery open. While performing the stent placement procedure, the operator uses a stent mounted on a balloon, which when inflated, pushes back the plaque deposits radially outward inside a coronary artery. A coronary stent is made up of a biocompatible medical-grade metal. The stent helps reduce recurrent blockages or re-narrowing of arteries after one undergoes an angioplasty. Once a metallic stent is implanted, it remains in the patient's artery permanently. Also referred to as stenting, stent placement is a minimally invasive procedure. That said, life after angioplasty can be quite different. Here's all you need to know.
