Coronary stents have saved and improved the lives of millions of people. Bellevue Medical Center cardiologist Dr. Haysam Akkad explains how a stent is place inside a blocked artery and what a patient is likely to feel after the procedure is finished.

The stent, a tiny wire mesh tube the holds the artery open, allowing increased blood flow.
