This paper reviews the latest research and development of drug-eluting stents. The emphasis is on coronary stenting, and both biostable and bioerodible stents are covered in this review. The advantages and shortcomings of the bioactive molecules used in these stents are analyzed, along with the rationale for using bioerodible coatings. The overall emphasis is on the performance of these stents in the clinic. Based on the evaluation of the different stent types, we conclude that fully-erodible… CONTINUE READING
