Degradable, drug-eluting stents: a new frontier for the treatment of coronary artery disease.

Abstract

This article reviews the clinical use of stents in the treatment of coronary artery disease and the rationale for the use of degradable, drug-eluting polymer stents. The authors note the challenges of using off-the-shelf polymers for the development of degradable stents, as well as the interplay between polymer properties and a functional stent design.
