If the patient is eligible to undergo vascular stenting, his doctor will discuss the available alternative options. These options include:

  1. CABG (coronary artery bypass graft) surgery is believed to provide better long-term results. However, CABG is an invasive surgery that involves scarring and more risks.
  2. Atherectomy is a procedure of drilling and removing the deposits and plaques which had built up in the lumen of the blood vessel.
  3. Percutaneous laser coronary angioplasty
  4. Blood thinners and anticoagulant medications
