The objective of the study is to assess the superiority of the biodegradable polymer based limus-eluting stents (ISAR G2, Nobori®) compared with the permanent polymer based everolimus-eluting stent (XIENCE V®) regarding absolute percentage of uncovered stent strut segments.
The mid-term efficacy of drug-eluting stents has been well-established, but there is an ongoing debate on the potential of an increased incidence of late stent thrombosis, particularly after discontinuation of thienopyridine therapy, as well as of delayed onset of restenosis or catch-up phenomenon with permanent polymer-based DES. The extent of strut coverage with reduction of exposed thrombogenic material has been shown to be associated with the inflammatory reaction grade and with the incidence of stent thrombosis. The optical coherence tomography (OCT) is an intravascular imaging modality based on light. The principle is similar to intravascular ultrasound, but due to the much shorter wave length of light, it offers a much better resolution up to 10µm, enabling the exact determination of strut coverage, neointimal thickness, vessel size, presence of dissections, and even the presence of inflammation.

The objective of the study is to evaluate the process of early re-endothelialization of the Coroflex® ISAR Drug-eluting stent compared with the Ultimaster® Drug-eluting stent
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 safety and efficacy of BP-DES compared to second-generation DP-DES remain unclear in the real-world setting. We compared the clinical outcomes of biodegradable polymer drug-eluting stents (BP-DES)...
The "very late" clinical outcomes for durable polymer drug-eluting stents and bare metal stents (BMSs) have been shown to be dissimilar in clinical studies. Conceptually, the long-term vascular compat...
This study sought to investigate endothelial coverage and barrier protein expression following stent implantation.

Comparative assessment of three drug eluting stents with different platforms but with the same biodegradable polymer and the drug based on quantitative coronary angiography and optical coherence tomography at 12-month follow-up.
The aim of this study was to compare neointima proliferation in three drug-eluting stents (DES) produced by the same company (Balton, Poland) which are covered with a biodegradable polymer and elute s...
Stents that are covered with materials that are embedded with chemicals that are gradually released into the surrounding milieu.
Strongly cationic polymer that binds to certain proteins; used as a marker in immunology, to precipitate and purify enzymes and lipids. Synonyms: aziridine polymer; Epamine; Epomine; ethylenimine polymer; Montrek; PEI; Polymin(e).
A polymer obtained by reacting polyacrylic acid with a special anion-leachable glass (alumino-silicate). The resulting cement is more durable and tougher than others in that the materials comprising the polymer backbone do not leach out.
A polyester used for absorbable sutures & surgical mesh, especially in ophthalmic surgery. 2-Hydroxy-propanoic acid polymer with polymerized hydroxyacetic acid, which forms 3,6-dimethyl-1,4-dioxane-dione polymer with 1,4-dioxane-2,5-dione copolymer of molecular weight about 80,000 daltons.
Devices that provide support for tubular structures that are being anastomosed or for body cavities during skin grafting.
A stent is a small mesh tube that's used to treat narrow or weak arteries. Arteries are blood vessels that carry blood away from your heart to other parts of your body. A stent is placed in an artery as part of a procedure called angioplasty. &...
