Ignore the press. Your doc did it because it was right for you. I've had a couple and it feels like life, not death. I was happy to be able to have this simple procedure instead of having my chest opened for a bypass!

Compared to surgical interventions such as bypass surgery, balloon angioplasty and stent placement are much less invasive and relatively low-risk, low-cost procedures.

Every procedure presents some risk but Alcie has a good point,  don't be overwhelmed by the press releases.

Kindly,

Kitt
