In Europe more than fifty stents are currently available for the therapy of coronary artery disease. Nonetheless it is unknown whether material and design influence the stent‘s behavior. We have studied the recoil and dilatation behavior of five currently available stainless steel (316L) stents compared to stent prototypes made of pure titanium. Furthermore(More)

Two landmark studies have shown that stainless steel stents significantly decrease the restenosis rate as compared to balloon angioplasty. This fact led to a marked increase of stent implantation since the first stent implantation by Jacques Puel in 1986. Although the concept(More)
