Are we over utilizing coronary stenting?

Do we really need that heart stent? Indeed, we are having many patients undergo heart catheterizations which result in coronary artery stenting of atherosclerotic vessels. Not only is it very important to assess anatomy with physiology (is the plaque really causing an issue with lack of blood supply to the heart?) but could medication deal with the issue equally as well as a stent?
