I am sure you have had a bruise on your body in the past, a black or blue mark that fades to green or yellow before fading altogether.

What is normal bruising after heart stent surgery?

It is more of a sterile procedure under local aneasthesia rather than a surgery as such.The placement of the stent is acheived by the catheter which is usually inserted either radially(from the arm) or femorally (from the groin). The catheter on the skin leaves only a small mark.It leaves some bruising marks on the arm because of the angle, the arm is kept for manouvering the catheter. This is normal as i consider this.This is from my own experience as i underwent the procedure in May,2009.
