Again, diet may prove to be the winner in prevention, though there's still work to be done on what to do when treating heart attacks.

Some of the links in the article are good too, like this one:

Our doc told us exactly this. The out-of-network doc who did OWC's stents also lined him up for more stents, plus a pacemaker, etc., etc. We had gotten involved there because the chopper pilot opted for a nearer hospital than the one we'd chosen.

After all the dust settled, we got to our own doc ASAP & he got the records from the stent specialist. Our doc's immediate reaction was 'stents do not prevent heart attacks'. We took him to mean that while stents were required at the moment of OWC's heart attack, an additional procedure to insert MORE stents was not necessary.
