What you need to know about Stent Insertion in Tel Aviv

A stent is a tiny wire mesh stainless steel tube used to keep a blocked artery open and prevent it from closing again. Depending on where it is placed, it can restore the flow of blood or other fluids. Stents usually become a permanent part of your artery, but some stents are temporary.

You may need a stent when a blood vessel is blocked by fatty deposits or plaque. Plaque is made of various substances, such as cholesterol, that attach to the walls of a vessel. A stent may also be required during an emergency procedure, which is more common if a coronary artery (an artery of the heart) is blocked. Stents can also be used to prevent aneurysms in your brain, aorta, or other blood vessels from rupturing.

While stents are most commonly used to keep blood vessels open, it can actually open other passageways as well, including:

  • Ureters – these are the tubes that transport urine from the kidneys to the urinary bladder.

  • Bronchi – these are the small airways in the lungs.

  • Bile ducts – these are the tubes that transport bile to and from digestive organs.

What's the Recovery Time?

Most people are able to return to work and most normal activities within 5-7 days following successful stent insertion surgery. However, strenuous activities, such as vigorous exercise and heavy lifting, should be avoided for several weeks.

What's the Success Rate?

Stent insertion is a generally safe procedure with a high success rate. It is one of the most effective methods to keep a blocked passageway open.

Although it is very safe, you need to remember that any surgical procedure has risks. For stent insertion, the risks include breathing problems, infection, bleeding, blood clots, heart attack, and the re-narrowing of the artery.

In some very rare cases, stent insertion may also cause strokes and seizures. There is also a very slight chance that your body will reject the stent.
