This is always preferred over ballooning as have better results.
For doing this procedure, general anesthesia is preferred as compared to intravenous sedation.
After having an access in leg by using femoral vessels, we do angiography of affected segment to delineate the segment. Then we park a long sheath across the segment.
Then Balloon mounted stent is placed across the stenosed segment and by inflating the balloon, we placed a stent across it.
The stent position is confirmed on angiography post-procedure.
The results of stenting pulmonary artery are good.
