Blood vessel stent, computer artwork. Stents are wire mesh tubes used to treat stenosis (narrowing) of the blood vessels. A balloon catheter will be used to guide the stent into place in the artery. Once in place the balloon is inflated to expand the stent and open the blood vessel. The balloon is then deflated and removed.
