    Nope.   It's something key to making your modern world work though.  You probably have thousands of them in your home.

    I may be full of it on this one, but how do they bend their hands then?  That does not seem like a sane place to put a stent.  Maybe I'm wrong.  I dunno

    Mainly arterial stents are used in the coronary arteries. They are tubes that open blockages. I have one.

    Right. But don't they have to be strategically placed?  That is not a good spot for a stent, I'm thinking.  And there is no artery in that spot on the hand.

    It has to be somewhere before they insert it. This might be show-and -tell.

    Nope,  but you're on the right track.  If someone can go e the ballpark I'll give it.  The exact name is a little much to ask being so small. It's a smaller version of a bigger tiny version that modern life possible in such small.packages.
