This study compares the effects of two polymers currently being marketed on commercially available drug-eluting stents, PVDF-HFP fluorinated copolymer (FP) and phosphorylcholine polymer (PC), on re-endothelialization, acute thrombogenicity, and monocyte adhesion and activity. Rabbit iliac arteries were implanted with cobalt-chromium stents coated with FP or(More)
PURPOSE To develop an ex-vivo arterial perfusion model to evaluate vascular responses to bare metal stents (BMS) and drug-eluting stents (DES) in porcine carotid arteries. MATERIALS AND METHODS Porcine carotid arteries with BMS or DES were cultured under hemodynamic stimuli for 24 hours and 72 hours. Vascular responses of arteries with stents were(More)
