Caption: Arterial stent. Coloured X-ray of a stent (orange) in a patient with vascular disease. The aorta is the large artery running down the centre, it branches into the two iliac arteries, which serve the legs. A stent has been placed in the right upper iliac artery. A stent is a wire mesh tube used to keep open an artery that has become narrowed. The arteries had become narrowed due to atheroma, fatty deposits, thickening the inner coat of the arteries.
