Coronary stent fracture in a saphenous vein graft to right coronary artery--successful treatment by the novel use of the Jomed coronary stent graft: case report and review of the literature.

Abstract

Coronary stents ultimately owe their success to the mechanical scaffolding effect that they provide. The mechanical properties of these metallic stents were designed not only to provide radial strength so as to prevent vessel recoil, but also to be able to resist the mechanical stress of vessel movement over millions of cardiac cycles. We present a case… (More)
