The objective of this study was to examine the relationship between stent surface topography and outcome in patients undergoing implantation of stents with rough and smooth surfaces. Surface topography is considered an important determinant of the bare stent performance. Specifically designed rough surface may increase the drug-storing capacity of stents but its direct impact on the risk of thrombosis and restenosis is not known. A total of 200 patients with significant stenosis in native… CONTINUE READING
