PURPOSE Stents coated with hypothrombogenic silicon carbide (a-SiC:H) exhibited low restenosis rates in the rabbit and in an observational study in humans. Thus, the clinical and angiographic outcome was assessed in a large multicenter study. MATERIAL AND METHODS Four hundred and ninety-seven patients (63.4 +/- 9.8 years) were randomized to either receive(More)
BACKGROUND Stents coated with amorphous hypothrombogenic silicon carbide (a-SiC:H) have low restenosis rates in humans. Recurrence in a-SiC:H at mid-term follow-up has been shown to be similar to a stainless steel device. The long-term outcome, however, may be different. METHODS Four hundred ninety-seven patients (63.4 +/- 9.8 years of age) received(More)
The stress on the articular surface of the hip joint is calculated for a group of joints with idiopathic osteoarthrosis of the hip and a healthy control group. The results indicate that compressive stress is of minor importance with respect to the etiology of idiopathic osteoarthrosis of the hip joint.
