Where does blood go after it picks up oxygen in the lungs?
Mehmet Oz, MD, Cardiology, answeredBlood is pumped into the lungs by the right lower chamber of the heart, called the right ventricle. It then returns to the left upper chamber, called the left atrium, and flows into the left ventricle, which pumps it to the rest of the body.
Why do I still have chest pain after my stent?
Residual soreness of the chest immediately following a coronary stent procedure is common. If you are still experiencing chest pain after having a stent that is similar to the pain before your stent then there could be several reasons. One, the pain you are having wasn't caused by the blockage in your heart artery where the stent was placed. You could have some small blood vessels in the heart that have disease that could cause you pain, but not large enough to have a stent put in or the stent could be developing an obstruction. No matter what the reason, you need to see your heart doctor again to determine the reason.Helpful? 1 person found this helpful.
