I am the opposite...I am hesitant to use a clinic that does offer stenting! Because if told, "I've ballooned it twice, it won't stay open, would you like a stent?" I would say yes, because in that moment it's a choice between feeling better and not feeling better. But from a step back I believe that I have time for them to do a little more research on neck stents and see even what sort of problems develop in the first year or two of use (let alone five years, ten years) and for them to get a proper venous stent on the market. So this is a reason for me to exclusively look "local" (counting the whole US as local) so that it's possible to go back a second time and it's cross-fingers covered under insurance.
