Stent and Angioplasty

Didn't know these words until recently. I wish I never had to know them.

A stent is a wire mesh tube used to prop open an artery. Angioplasty is the act of putting the stent into an artery. Apparently Stent is pretty expensive. More information from here.

My father just suffered a mild heart attack and will have to put in few stents, he's 83.
