New Delhi: Benefit of price reduction of coronary stents should not be curtailed by increasing charges of procedures, an RSS body on Tuesday said while appealing to the government to also issue guidelines for angioplasty services.

The Swadeshi Jagran Manch, an RSS-affiliated body, while welcoming the reduction in prices of stents, also called for introduction of free angioplasty services in government hospitals including at the district level.

 

The government had on Monday reduced prices of coronary stents by up to 400 per cent, capping them at Rs 7,260 for bare metal ones and Rs 29,600 for the drug eluting variety. A coronary stent is a device placed in the arteries that supply blood to the heart.
