... in response to Drug-Eluting Stent Risks
  1. Ernest Baglietto Ernest Baglietto Gibraltar says:

    I have had 3 DES a month ago and a further one following a thulium stress test. I also have a stenosis of my right femoral artery causing me to suffer from Intermittent Caludication). Surgery is scheduled for a month following the Lat stent. I am to stop taking Brilique(Ticagrlor) a week before surgery. To be reinstated after surgery and continue for a year. This has been approved by my Cardiologist but I am nevertheless somewhat worried. Any advise out there ?
