The effect of variable dose and release kinetics on neointimal hyperplasia using a novel paclitaxel-eluting stent platform: the Paclitaxel In-Stent Controlled Elution Study (PISCES).
Local Drug Delivery via a Coronary Stent With Programmable Release Pharmacokinetics
Layered polymer/drug inlay stent technology permits flexible and controllable pharmacokinetic profiles and programmable, complex chemotherapy using this approach may be feasible for the treatment of cardiovascular disease.
Coronary angioscopy in patients with unstable angina pectoris.
It is concluded that angioscopy frequently reveals complex plaques or thrombi not detected by coronary angiography, which suggests that anginal syndromes that are refractory to medical treatment can be caused by unstable pathologic processes in the intima.
Influence of gender on in-hospital clinical and angiographic outcomes and on one-year follow-up in the New Approaches to Coronary Intervention (NACI) registry.

In the first 100 patients undergoing percutaneous excimer laser coronary angioplasty at an institution, this technique was found to be acutely effective and safe therapy for lesions identified as not ideal for balloon angiopLasty and may provide a useful adjunct or alternative to balloons in selected patients.
A perspective of coronary disease seen through the arteries of living man.
"A LONG DISPUTE," Voltaire (himself an incorrigible disputant) was fond of saying, "means both parties are wrong." Cardiology's longest debate concerns the pathogenesis of acute coronary disease.…
Coronary perforation after excimer laser coronary angioplasty: the Excimer Laser Coronary Angioplasty Registry experience.
Subacute thrombosis and vascular injury resulting from slotted-tube nitinol and stainless steel stents in a rabbit carotid artery model.
Slotted-tube stainless steel stents were more thrombogenic and created more extensive vascular injury than nitinol stents in a rabbit carotid artery model and probably are related to metallurgic and design geometry properties of the two stent types.
