Thanks for the query. It is hard to predict the life expectancy that way. But if you are looking for good news then let me tell you that since he is a young fellow the chances are very good. I have seen people you have lived more than 25 years post stenting. Make sure he is following his diet, exercise, and control of habiys.Have a healthy living
