Louis Brunsting, M.D, associate professor of surgery and chief of the Section of Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery at the University of Alabama at Birmingham and Massoud Leesar, M.D., professor of medicine and chief of the Section of Interventional Cardiology, modified the procedure to take place over three days instead of all at one time to decrease the risk of bleeding a patient could endure due to blood-thinning medication taken prior to the stenting procedure.
