I had a blood clot & heart attack in January 2014 two stents

Customer Question

I had a blood clot & heart attack in January 2014 two stents put in one artery. In March I had to return to have one stent replaced as it was not working. I am now beginning to feel as though it could have happened again. Is there any non invasive test I can have to determine if the stents are working properly? Wyn

Yes there is an indirect method we use to see the stent patency.

It is ETT which shows us ST changes if stent is blocked or narrowed.
