The Swedish National Encyclopedia says:
"stent (after British dentist Charles R. Stent, d. 1885), originally mold or imprint made in a soft material which then hardens, e.g. dental imprint. The term now applies to tube structures in plastic or metal, which during an operation of a stricture is placed in a blood vessel or other cavity to prevent the stricture from recurring." (My translation)
