    What is a Clinical Breast Exam (CBE)?

    A clinical breast exam (CBE) is similar to a BSE, except it is performed by your health care provider. If you have questions about how to perform a BSE, your health care provider can discuss and demonstrate the proper technique during your CBE.

    What is an angioplasty, stent or coronary intervention?

    After a diagnostic angiogram is performed, there are several possibilities. If there are no or mild blockages, medical therapy is advised and the procedure is complete. If there are numerous blockages, a blockage in unfavorable locations, or abnormal heart valves, a heart operation (bypass surgery or valve surgery) is advised. If there are blockages which are amenable to angioplasty then that procedure is usually performed immediately after the diagnostic angiogram. Angioplasty is a procedure where a catheter with a small balloon at the tip is inserted at the site of a blockage. The balloon is properly sized and then inflated to open the blocked artery. The balloon catheter is then removed from the body. This procedure is rarely performed by itself in 2005 due to an increased chance of a recurrence (restenosis) 3-6 months after the procedure. New metal devices called stents are utilized in over 90% of intervention procedures. The newest generation of stents which are permanently implanted metal coils coated with medications which inhibit restenosis are used in a majority of cases. The chance of a regrowth of the blockage after a medication coated stent is placed is under 5%. An intervention procedure usually requires at least a one night stay in the hospital.
