Stent placement is designed to reduce your risk of heart stress that can lead to a heart attack. If you have not developed any further artery plaque and your heart is strong, there is no need to have undue concern regarding your heart.

With your history, your surgeon might consider a nuclear stress test to determine the health of your heart.

I have many patients who have undergone stent placement and do just fine in spine surgery.
