So, since I myself probably have atherosclerotic (plaque) causing peripheral arterial disease...
(here's a demo: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UhwX5zO17qk
i got to thinking:
- on the one hand, there's the metal scaffolding, which seems like it might be painful.
- on the other hand, there's these floppy balloons of angioplasty, which are then removed.
So there's no such thing as firm, silicone scaffold-stents, such as the silicone of spatula's?
