OBJECTIVES We tested the hypothesis that thinner-strut stents are associated with a reduced rate of restenosis when comparing two stents with different design. BACKGROUND We have previously shown that, for two stents with similar design, the risk for restenosis is dependent on the strut thickness. It is unknown whether strut thickness preserves its relevance as a determinant of restenosis even in the presence of different stent designs. METHODS A total of 611 patients with symptomatic… CONTINUE READING
