My feet hurt after walking less than 100 yds. Four years ago i had three stents placed in an artery on my heart. Would this cause the pain? Stents were introduc
Hi, If after walking 100 yards, pain is in the chest, then show to a cardiologist, for proper evaluation. If the pain is in the legs, get a colour Doppler of your legs, it can be due to arteriosclerosis of your leg arteries and the management will depend upon the level and extent of the block. See a vascular surgeon for that. Dr. Ashish Verma

Which stent ?
 
I had a stent put in my RCA two days ago... I feel a tinglng in my left arm. Should i worry?
Hi there, thanks for your query. After angioplasty and stenting, it is common to have trivial sensations for a few days or even weeks. As such, the stent was put at the blockage site as seen on angiography, which may not have shown a critical blockage in any other coronary artery. Nothing to worry if there is no associated chest pain or other problems. Dr. Rakesh Karanwal
