Can you get a stent after bypass surgery and vice versa?
Q. A friend told me that if you get a stent you can't have bypass surgery later on. Is that right? And what about the opposite "" getting a stent after having bypass surgery?
A. It isn't uncommon to get an artery-opening stent after undergoing bypass surgery or to have bypass surgery after getting a stent.
