Many Heart Patients Being Stented Unnecessarily

A new study published in The New England Journal of Medicine shows that many people with clogged heart arteries are being overtreated with stents, and that a simple blood-flow test can help prevent unnecessary stenting.  By using the blood-flow test, called fractional flow reserve, to decide when a stent was truly needed, the study showed that fewer stent-related deaths, heart attacks and repeat procedures occurred.
