Frequency of stent fracture as a cause of coronary restenosis after sirolimus-eluting stent implantation.

Abstract

Stent fracture (SF) was suggested as a cause of restenosis after sirolimus-eluting stent (SES) implantation. This study was performed to evaluate the incidence and characteristics of SF to determine its contribution to restenosis in patients with in-stent restenosis (ISR) after SES implantation. From May 2003 to February 2006, SESs were used for… (More)
