Stents Might be Causing Heart Attacks Rather than Preventing Them
Rowen puts out an excellent newsletter.I urge you to subscribe to it and read it.In the July, 2014, issue he rightly raises
his voice in anger because 4 million medicated stents have been surgically
placed in U. S. patients in the last decade.The studies supporting the use of these stents are woefully
inadequate.The drug coating on the
stents may cause 4,500 new heart attacks each year, almost half of them
fatal.Bare metal stents might often be
a safer choice.Those who get the
medicated ones are often treated with Coumadin (rat poison) for extended
periods of time.A few years back, I
published a paper contending that EDTA chelation would be much safer and quite
effective with or without a stent.So
far that has landed on deaf ears.
