What Conditions Can Vascular Stenting Treat?

Vascular Stenting

Vascular stenting is a minimally invasive treatment to open collapsing vessels within the body. It entails placing a stent within the restricted vessel. Several medical conditions affect the vessels in our bodies, all of which can be treated with stents.

After you undergo vascular stenting, Dr. Alan I. Benvenisty may prescribe antiplatelet medications like aspirin for up to a year to reduce the risk of blood clot formation, which can cause life-threatening complications.

Types of Stents

Stents are created from different materials and serve varying functions based on their intended location within the body and the health condition they will treat. For example, some stents are designed to be placed in the bronchial airways of the lungs, the bile ducts to and from digestive organs, the ureters that channel urine from the kidneys to the bladder or blood vessels.
The following stents are designed for treating vascular conditions.

Bare Metal Stents
Bare metal stents are mesh tubes used in the coronary and carotid arteries.
Drug-Eluting Stents
Coronary arteries typically get drug-eluting stents. They have medicine coated on them, which is released slowly into the artery to keep it from constricting again. There are many varieties of drug-eluting stents, each coated with a particular medication.
Biodegradable Stents
Stents made of biodegradable materials degrade in a matter of months. Therefore, this stent is appropriate and beneficial for short-term solutions when the condition only requires temporary use. Its most significant advantage is that you will not need another treatment for removal since it disintegrates.
3D Printed Stents
The FDA just recently gave their permission to 3D printed stents in 2020. These stents can be tailored to the needs and dimensions of each patient.

Treatable Conditions

Vascular stents are implanted in arteries to keep them from narrowing or getting blocked completely. You may benefit from vascular stenting if you have atherosclerosis or have recently suffered a heart attack.

Plaque buildup occurs in people who have peripheral arterial disease, carotid artery disease, renal artery disease and coronary artery disease. In addition, vascular stents are helpful for patients with abdominal aortic aneurysms and other types of aneurysms, deep vein thrombosis patients (those with a blood clot in the arm, leg or pelvis) and other vascular disease conditions.

Renata B.

Dr. Benvenisty was excellent and helped us with my husband's extensive leg swelling related to diabetes. We had another specialist who didn't help us last year. We're planning to stay with Dr. Benvenisty now! He's detailed oriented, matter-of-fact and friendly. An excellent doctor I would strongly recommend.


Dr. Benvenisty treated my mother in the ER during this time of the covid outbreak. He was a part of a fantastic team of doctors that were brought in to find out what was ailing my mother. He is first and for most experienced in many areas as my mother was diagnosed with pancreatitis. Although he transferred the surgery to another member of his team, he gave me his mobile and kept me informed of her condition/diagnosis at a time where I was unable to be with her myself because of this pandemic. His heart, compassion, understanding and bedside manner are things that I will not ever forget. He is an excellent doctor and truly a great human being.

Howard L.

Dr. Benvenisty is the most caring physician that I know. He is brilliant, highly ethical and trustworthy. His knowledge extends well beyond his specialty. He makes referrals to the best possible physicians. I know Dr. Benvenisty for 25 years and have complete confidence in him.
