BACKGROUND This study evaluated the inflammatory reaction at the site of overlapping drug-eluting stents (DES) in a porcine model of in-stent restenosis. METHODS AND RESULTS Twenty bare metal stents (BMS) (group I; n=10), 20 sirolimus-eluting stents (SES) (group II: n=10), 20 paclitaxel-eluting stent (PES) (group III: n=10), and 10 PES and 10 SES (group IV: n=10) were overlapped in the left anterior descending coronary arteries of 40 pigs. Follow-up coronary angiography and histopathology… CONTINUE READING
