Chennai, Feb 28 (UNI) Dr.Marc Silvestri, a world renowned Interventional Cardiologist from the University of Marseille, France, performed a unique procedure in stenting off left main coronary artery and associated complex lesions on three patients at Sri Ramachandra University here today.
The surgeries were done as part of a workshop for interventional cardiologists organised by SRU.
Later talking to newspersons he said worldwide there was still a controversy whether surgery or stenting was better. ''As far as mortality is concerned it is less for stenting. If we find there is more chance of recurrence of narrowing of the left main coronary artery, then we recommend surgery. If several stents have to be used, surgery is better and less expensive,'' he said.
