I hear of anticoagulants being very important for patients who have stents, but few have them with balloon angioplasty.
Why is this?
I thought ANY surgical incision/intervention would need anticoagulants to prevent clotting?
Could someone explain please

So i guess i better demand anticoagulants post procedure.
How long is suitable to be taking the anticoagulants for after being liberated?
Is Heparin theb est choice anticoagulant?
