A heart attack (myocardial infarction) occurs when blood flow to a part of the heart is blocked and the heart muscle is damaged. A stent is a device that enlarges the opening of a clogged artery to restore blood flow. Join Dr. Nadim Al-Mubarak, interventional cardiologist at University Hospitals St. John Medical Center, to learn about the use of stents to potentially prevent a heart attack from happening, or as an alternative to open heart surgery in treating a heart attack.

Participants will also learn:

  • Types of heart stents available
  • Risks and benefits of receiving a heart stent
  • How stent placement impacts future risk of heart attack
  • Medications taken after the procedure, and how long to take them
  • The recovery process, including benefits of cardiac rehabilitation

An audience question and answer segment is included.
