Use of drug coated stents to prop open occluded arteries have been popular among physicians until recently. Stents are tiny mesh tubes inserted into the artery to prop them open after they’ve been cleared of plaque. The drug coated stents are designed to keep the arteries from clogging after the tube or stent is inserted.
