• I am wondering if any one knows the record for stents placed in a heart. I myself have 17. I have also had six by-passes.

• Jos -- for the U.S. you can read the American Heart Association 2011 statistical update and check our recent Editor's Blog article, "Angioplasty and Stent Use Cut in Half -- Sort of..." which radically modifies what they were reporting, cited in our August 2, 2009 post below. I imagine that the European Society of Cardiology should have stats for the EU.

• I am looking for the total PTCA procedures worldwide, stents worldwide, MI worldwide/ separated per country. Do you have cost estimations as well per indication/ treatment? Any advice as to where this information might be found? Thanks in advance.

• American Heart Association states that 1.313 million PCI procedures were done in 2006 -- and greater than 70% involved the use of drug-eluting stents. However, fall 2006 is when the concerns over late stent thrombosis in DES first were publicized and DES use fell precipitously in the last quarter of 2006. As more studies have come out, the benefits of DES over bare metal in specific patient populations has become clearer and DES use is starting to increase again. Current measures show DES at 60% or more. Remember that 1.313 million is the number of procedures; more than one stent may be used in a single procedure.
