Dr Adrian Banning  MB BS, MD, FRCP, FESC is a Consultant Cardiologist at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford.  He treats Private Patients at the John Radcliffe and at the new Manor Hospital in Oxford.  He has an international reputation in percutaneous coronary intervention particularly in the use of coronary stents. 

 

Heart disease and cancer are the commonest causes of death in the United Kingdom. Most cardiac deaths are caused by narrowing of the heart arteries due to a process called atheroma. Atheroma causes both angina and heart attacks. Fortunately this can be treated with either medication, coronary angioplasty/stenting or bypass surgery, restoring people to a normal quality of life. This site explains some of the causes of heart disease and explains some of the treatment options.  It demonstrates how stents work including videos of stents being deployed and explains why drug eluting stents are useful.

 

  When the lining of the heart artery splits, small blood particles called platelets accumulate causing reduced blood flow and a heart attack.
