Clinical and biomechanical behavior of a platinum-chromium stent platform in a large all-comer single-center population: insights from the Novara-PROMETEUS registry.

Abstract

AIMS Longitudinal deformation has been described as a new complication affecting new-generation thin-strut coronary stents. Benchmark tests have suggested that the platinum-chromium (PtCr) Element coronary stent platform (Boston Scientific) might present increased susceptibility to this complication. Our study assessed the incidence of longitudinal stent… (More)
