Post Study: Stents Cheaper, Better Than Bypass Surgery 
http://online.wsj.com/article/BT-CO-20090328-700848.html

Studies are showing that stents to open blocked arteries are much cheaper and just as effective as bypass surgery in a number of patients.

Hmmm...a stent inserted through an incision in the femoral artery and expanded in an artery, versus having one's entire ribcage cut open and winched apart so that doc can graft some new plumbing on to replace the old stuff?

Tough call. Naw- gimme the stent.
