Stenting for coronary artery disease (CAD)
About 10 -15% of stents fail and patients may also develop blockages elsewhere as the cause of coronary artery disease (CAD) has not been treated. In other words, your friend still has CAD! Therefore, there is lots more to be done than just listening to his heart and it should specifically include efforts to control the risk factors for CAD that may cause atherosclerosis. Above all, treatment should include a heart healthy life style counseling.
Hope this helps,
