The purpose of this study is to compare coronary endothelium function in patients with a zotarolimus-eluting versus a sirolimus-eluting or a everolimus-eluting stents with optical coherence tomography, vasoconstriction in response to acetylcholine, and coronary biomarker level.

The PROTECT TRIAL is a randomized stent trial with 8800 patients in approximately 200 hospitals, which is designed to evaluate whether the Endeavor stent PROTECTS against late stent thromb...
Increasing lesion complexity in percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) has warranted the use of overlapping drug-eluting stents. Whether the substantial impairment of arterial healing ...
Primary intracoronary stent placement after successfully crossing chronic total coronary occlusions (CTO) decreases the high restenosis rate at long-term follow-up compared with convention...
The purpose of this trial is to evaluate the efficacy of Rapamycin- and Zotarolimus-Eluting stents for the reduction of Coronary Restenosis
Chronic total coronary occlusions (CTO) have an especially high risk of angiographic restenosis, and need for new revascularization procedures. Drug-eluting coronary stents (DES) have demo...
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 evaluate the optimal treatment for in-stent restenosis (ISR) of drug-eluting stents (DESs).
Diabetes mellitus is known to be associated with worse clinical outcomes in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) undergoing percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) with drug-eluting stents (D...
The benefit of drug-eluting stents (DES) versus drug-coated balloons (DCB) in coronary artery in-stent restenosis (ISR) for the prevention of target lesion revascularization (TLR), stent thrombosis, a...
This study sought to investigate endothelial coverage and barrier protein expression following stent implantation.
Stents that are covered with materials that are embedded with chemicals that are gradually released into the surrounding milieu.
An analytical technique for resolution of a chemical mixture into its component compounds. Compounds are separated on an adsorbent paper (stationary phase) by their varied degree of solubility/mobility in the eluting solvent (mobile phase).
Separation systems containing a relatively long-lived parent radionuclide which produces a short-lived daughter in its decay scheme. The daughter can be periodically extracted (milked) by means of an appropriate eluting agent.
A macrolide compound obtained from Streptomyces hygroscopicus that acts by selectively blocking the transcriptional activation of cytokines thereby inhibiting cytokine production. It is bioactive only when bound to IMMUNOPHILINS. Sirolimus is a potent immunosuppressant and possesses both antifungal and antineoplastic properties.
Devices that provide support for tubular structures that are being anastomosed or for body cavities during skin grafting.
Of all the types of Dementia, Alzheimer's disease is the most common, affecting around 465,000 people in the UK. Neurons in the brain die, becuase 'plaques' and 'tangles' (mis-folded proteins) form in the brain. People with Al...
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. &...
