Endovascular stents have proven effective in treating coronary and peripheral arterial occlusions. Since the first attempts, metals used to make these devices have been generally selected, and designed to be highly resistant to corrosion. Therefore, as almost the totality of metallic biomaterials, they are implanted on a long-term basis. However, complications associated with permanent stents, such as in-stent restenosis and thrombosis, have often been reported. In order to reduce those… CONTINUE READING
