The attorneys at Morgan and Morgan are pleased to announce that a website has been launched for patients who have undergone a cardiac catheterization or stent procedure. The site was developed in light of reports that some doctors and hospitals may be unnecessarily ordering these procedures in an attempt to increase their own revenue. On the site, patients can learn more about these allegations and find out how they can determine whether their cardiac stent procedure was necessary.

Coronary stenting is typically prohibited in patients with less than 70% artery blockage, as advances in technology and medicine have provided other treatment options for patients with less significant blockages. Reports have surfaced that some doctors are misleading patients – even those with blockages as low as 10% - as to the severity of their plaque buildup in an attempt to convince them to undergo a cardiac stent procedure. Cardiac stenting costs between $10,000 and $15,000 per patient and is reported to contribute significantly
to doctor and hospital revenue.
Cardiac stent operations carry the risk of heart attack, stroke, artery damage, arrhythmia and kidney problems caused by an adverse reaction to the dye used in the procedure. After the stent has been implanted, the patient may be at risk for blood clots, which can have serious complications including heart attack. Oftentimes, many cardiac stent patients are prescribed blood thinners to reduce their blood clot risk following the procedure. When cardiac stent placement is performed in those who could be treated with less invasive and less expensive methods, otherwise healthy patients are allegedly being put at risk for serious complications and, potentially, prolonged use of blood thinners.
