USA Today

About one in 10 people who have angioplasty to open blocked heart arteries will land back in the hospital within 30 days, a new study indicates. And a second, related report found that rehospitalization after angioplasty or stent placement remains a risk even three years after the procedure. Both studies, which appear in the Nov. 28 issue of the Archives of Internal Medicine, highlight the need for better methods of identifying and treating high-risk individuals.
