Late thrombosis in drug-eluting coronary stents after discontinuation of antiplatelet therapy
Although the safety profiles of coronary stents eluting sirolimus or paclitaxel do not seem to differ from those of bare metal stents in the short-to-medium term, concern has arisen about theExpand

Late angiographic stent thrombosis (LAST) events with drug-eluting stents.
OBJECTIVES We sought to describe the incidence of late angiographic stent thrombosis (LAST) events in an unselected drug-eluting stent (DES) population. BACKGROUND Concerns have been raised thatExpand

A bioabsorbable everolimus-eluting coronary stent system (ABSORB): 2-year outcomes and results from multiple imaging methods
BACKGROUND Drug-eluting metallic coronary stents predispose to late stent thrombosis, prevent late lumen vessel enlargement, hinder surgical revascularisation, and impair imaging with multislice CT.Expand

TAXUS III Trial: In-Stent Restenosis Treated With Stent-Based Delivery of Paclitaxel Incorporated in a Slow-Release Polymer Formulation
Background—The first clinical study of paclitaxel-eluting stent for de novo lesions showed promising results. We performed the TAXUS III trial to evaluate the feasibility and safety ofExpand

A bioabsorbable everolimus-eluting coronary stent system for patients with single de-novo coronary artery lesions (ABSORB): a prospective open-label trial
BACKGROUND A fully bioabsorbable drug-eluting coronary stent that scaffolds the vessel wall when needed and then disappears once the acute recoil and constrictive remodelling processes have subsidedExpand

Optical coherence tomography patterns of stent restenosis.
BACKGROUND Stent restenosis is an infrequent but poorly understood clinical problem in the drug-eluting stent era. The aim of the study was to evaluate the morphologic characteristics of stentExpand

Thirty-day incidence and six-month clinical outcome of thrombotic stent occlusion after bare-metal, sirolimus, or paclitaxel stent implantation.
OBJECTIVES We sought to determine the real-world incidence of angiographically confirmed and possible stent thrombosis (ST) in an unrestricted population during the first 30 days after bare-metalExpand

Sirolimus-eluting stent for treatment of complex in-stent restenosis: the first clinical experience.
OBJECTIVES In this study, we assess the value of sirolimus eluting stent (SES) implantation in patients with complex in-stent restenosis (ISR). BACKGROUND The treatment of ISR remains a therapeuticExpand
