This is used to pass coronary balloons that stretch the narrowed artery. Usually, a balloon expandable coronary stent is then deployed to scaffold the narrowing area and prevent arterial recoil. Drug-eluting stents may be used that elute antimitotic agents ablumenally to reduce the risk of localised neointimal proliferation and in-stent restenosis. To reduce the risk of stent thrombosis, a period of dual antiplatelet therapy with aspirin and clopidogrel is required after stenting. For bare metal stents, a period of 4 weeks is adequate.

5 cm are, therefore, usually monitored ultrasonographically rather than offered surgery. Because of this relationship between size and risk of rupture, AAA size becomes the critical factor dictating clinical management. 2% Screening for AAAs Screening programmes to detect AAAs have now been set up in many developed countries. The rationale behind AAA screening is that AAAs are often asymptomatic before rupture, have a long latent period and can be detected during an early phase in the disease using a test that is sufficiently sensitive, acceptable and cost effective.
