Excel Drug-Eluting Stent Pilot Clinical Registry
30-day, 6-month, and 12-month clinical follow-up and 6 to 9-month IVUS or SCA follow-up to measure long-term efficiency of Excel stent in the inhibition of restenosis as well as the safety after the cessation of the 6-month anti-platelet drug treatment.

The main objective of the study is to determine whether PCI for in-stent restenosis with a drug eluting balloon is angiographically non-inferior to PCI with a drug eluting stent at 6 month...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the Conor Sirolimus-eluting Coronary Stent System in the treatment of coronary artery disease (a single atheroscler...
The purpose of this study is to establish the safety and effectiveness of coronary stenting with the Everolimus- Eluting stent compared to the Sirolimus-Eluting stent in the treatment of d...
Drug eluting stents significantly reduced the rate of in-stent restenosis in coronary arteries. There are several kinds of DES i.e. eluting the drug either from stable or biodegradable pol...
The objective of the study is to verify the safety and efficacy of the MDT-4107 Drug-Eluting Coronary Stent for the treatment of de novo lesions in native coronary arteries.
A 73-year-old man with 2-vessel coronary artery disease underwent a staged percutaneous coronary intervention that resulted in rupture of the right coronary artery and pseudoaneurysm formation. Althou...
Aims: To compare stent strut coverage using optical coherence tomography (OCT) at three-month follow-up between a PLGA-polymer with electro-grafting base layer sirolimus-eluting stent (SES) (BuMA) and...
The goal of this study was to provide a systematic review comparing the long-term outcomes of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with drug-eluting stents (DES) versus coronary artery bypass graf...
Although drug-eluting stent (DES) compared with bare metal stent (BMS) use reduces in-stent restenosis (ISR) in traditional coronary artery disease, its efficacy in cardiac allograft vasculopathy (CAV...
Drug-eluting stents have emerged as a solution to the problem of restenosis after bare-metal stent implantation, as an alternative to off-pump coronary bypass, for isolated left anterior descending co...
Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
The ratio of maximum blood flow to the MYOCARDIUM with CORONARY STENOSIS present, to the maximum equivalent blood flow without stenosis. The measurement is commonly used to verify borderline stenosis of CORONARY ARTERIES.
Narrowing or constriction of a coronary artery.
A complication of INTERNAL MAMMARY-CORONARY ARTERY ANASTOMOSIS whereby an occlusion or stenosis of the proximal SUBCLAVIAN ARTERY causes a reversal of the blood flow away from the CORONARY CIRCULATION, through the grafted INTERNAL MAMMARY ARTERY (internal thoracic artery), and back to the distal subclavian distribution.
Abnormal balloon- or sac-like dilatation in the wall of CORONARY VESSELS. Most coronary aneurysms are due to CORONARY ATHEROSCLEROSIS, and the rest are due to inflammatory diseases, such as KAWASAKI DISEASE.
Stents that are covered with materials that are embedded with chemicals that are gradually released into the surrounding milieu.
