Haemocompatibility of polymer-coated stainless steel stents as compared to uncoated stents.

Abstract

Acute and subacute stent thrombosis still represent an unsolved problem in connection with endovascular stents. For this reason coatings are tested now with the intention to reduce thrombogenicity of stainless steel surfaces. This comparative study examined whether a polymeric stent coating affected the haemocompatibility of a stainless steel stent. For… (More)
