OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to evaluate the Sparrow sirolimus-eluting stent (Sparrow-SES) against the Sparrow bare-metal stent (Sparrow-BMS) and conventional balloon-expandable bare-metal stent (BMS: Driver/Micro-Driver stent, Medtronic Vascular, Santa Rosa, CA).

The performance of this device with sirolimus in a fully biodegradable polymer has… CONTINUE READING
