AARP - "Heart Stents for Blockages"
Former president George W. Bush is a physically fit guy, an avid bicyclist, and has never had a weight problem.
So why would he need a heart stent? Because "even very active people" can develop heart disease if they have other risk factors, according to Samin Sharma, MD, a cardiologist at The Mount Sinai Medical Center who was not involved in the former president’s care, but who specializes in treating artery and heart valve blockages.
