New Online Resource Available Specifically for Patients and Their Caregivers Following a Heart Stent Procedure
Date:1/18/2011

PARSIPPANY, N.J. and INDIANAPOLIS, Jan. 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, patient support group Mended Hearts, in partnership with Daiichi Sankyo, Inc. and Eli Lilly and Company, launched the Stent Hub – an online resource for acute coronary syndrome (ACS) patients who were treated with angioplasty and stenting (also known as percutaneous coronary intervention, or PCI), as well as their caregivers.

"I find that many ACS patients who receive a stent have the impression their heart is 'fixed,' and much more attention is paid to patients who undergo bypass surgery after a heart attack, " said Dr. JoAnne Foody, medical director, Cardiovascular Wellness Program at Brigham and Women's Hospital. "But it is vitally important to recognize that having a stent requires education and follow up too.  Adherence to oral antiplatelet therapy and other medications, as well as a healthy lifestyle, are important to help prevent future heart events and maintain the stent benefits."

While there are many online resources for general heart disease, the Stent Hub is one of the first dedicated to providing educational information and support specifically for ACS-PCI patients and their caregivers. ACS is a condition that includes heart attack and unstable angina (heart-related chest pain at rest) and affects more than one million Americans annually.(1)

"Our organization sees many stent patients who are eager to learn about their condition and how to take a proactive role in the future of their heart health," said Tim Elsner, executive director, Mended Hearts. "The Stent Hub will address this unmet need, and is a welcome addition to the Hearts in Harmony® program and web site."

The Stent Hub takes a holistic approach to recovery after the placement of a heart stent, providing guidance and educational and motivational information that address the physical and emotional obstacles a patient and their caregiver may encounter after a heart stent proce
