I had 4 stents inserted to my Arteries about 5/6 years ago ,how long can they do their job keeping an artery open ? obviously at least 5 years :roll:

That's almost as hard to answer as how long is a piece of string. It all patient dependent, and how the individual body is working. The stent itself should still be capable of performing, but there may be a build up of plaque within them, or other parts of the arteries that need attention.

If you have concerns, ask your doctor and request to be referred to the cardiology specialists.

Stents will last forever if they are made of some sort of metal as most are.

Stentfailure

(From: Scrutiny of Stent Problems Turns to Doctors, WSJ, May 29, 2007)

Therefore the question is not about stent durability, but about keeping the coronary artery opened up in the location where it was deployed. Because a stent destroys the artery locally, there will be scar tissue that rapidly grows over the stent. In addition, there is a strong tendency for clots to form at the site where the stent damages the arterial wall. Since platelets are involved in the clotting process, patients must take anti-platelet therapy afterwards, usually clopidogrel (Plavix) for six months and aspirin indefinitely.
