Coronary Stents Do Not Work

The New York Times Wakes – Forty Years Later


 Consider the following quote from The New York Times of June 22, 2015:

But while stents unquestionably save lives of patients in the throes of a heart attack or a threatened heart attack, there is no convincing evidence that stents reduce heart attack risk for people suffering from the chest pains known as stable angina. These are people who feel tightness or discomfort walking up a hill, for example, because a partly blocked coronary artery is depriving their heart of blood. But the pain or tightness goes away if they stop and rest or just stay still.


Will the Times make any difference? No. As long hospitals and insurance companies continue to enrich themselves from stents, these tiny tubes will continue to be used.

Will the Times make any difference? No. As long hospitals and insurance companies continue to enrich themselves from stents, these tiny tubes will continue to be used.


The typical treatment for angina is to thread a narrow catheter up from a blood vessel in the groin to the heart, squirt in a dye that allows a cardiologist to see blockages in arteries on X-rays, and then insert a stent in the blocked areas. Stents are safe but expensive.


How Much Does Medicare Pay for Stents: Here is what the Times told its readers: payments vary depending on what kind of stent is used and how many, but are generally above $10,000 and can be more than $17,000.


The New York Times on Cholesterol – Still Wrong After Fifty Years

Here is an quote from the article published on June 22, 2015:

“And there is a reasonable argument that drugs — cholesterol -lowering statins in particular — might be just as good at reducing such pain.”

To learn how deceptive this statement from the Times really is, please consider free “Dr. Ali’s Cholesterol Course.
