Brief description Coronary stents are wire mesh tubes inserted into cholesterol blockages in heart blood vessels (arteries) thus improving coronary blood flow and alleviating chest pain. Although life saving in acute heart attacks, their value is limited in stable patients and may be associated with severe complications. In partnership with the health department, this project will evaluate how many patients continue to experience chest pain after elective coronary stenting so that can be used more effectively.
