The attorneys working with ClassAction.org are available to review claims from patients who received a cardiac catheterization or coronary stent procedure. It has been reported that, in some instances, these procedures are being recommended to patients who had other available treatment options in an effort to increase revenue for the physicians and hospitals which perform them. In general, cardiac catheterization and stenting should be reserved for patients whose arteries are blocked by 70% or more, as advances in technology and medicine have allowed for the development of alternative treatments for patients with insignificant blockages. If you suspect you received a cardiac stent procedure unnecessarily, legal recourse may be available.

Cardiac catheterizations and stenting procedures provide relief to patients who suffered from heart disease and severe angina, but have also become highly regarded as life-saving operations. In general, these procedures are prohibited for arteries which are less than 70% blocked. Patients with stable coronary artery disease should not be recommended to receive a stent as an initial treatment option, as these procedures are no more effective at preventing heart attacks in these individuals than other less invasive medical treatments. A number of risks
have been associated with coronary stent placement, including, but not limited to stroke, heart attack, blood clots and the need for emergency bypass surgery. Additionally, many patients who undergo stent procedures may require prolonged treatment with expensive blood thinners to reduce their risk of blood clots.
If a cardiologist finds that a patient received a cardiac stent when their arteries were less than 70% blocked, the patient may be able to make a claim for medical bills and other damages in light of allegations that some hospitals are performing these procedures too frequently and too soon. Patients who suspect they may have undergone an unnecessary cardiac stenting procedure can have their situation evaluated for free by visiting http://www.classaction.org/unnecessary-stents.html
and completing the form on the right. There is no cost or obligation for this case review.
