Next generation covered stents made from nanocomposite materials: A complete assessment of uniformity, integrity and biomechanical properties.

Abstract

Covered stents are stents wrapped with a thin polymeric membrane, and are typically used to treat vessel aneurysms and seal perforated arteries. Current covered stents suffer from restenosis due to limitations in material and fabrication methods which leaves metallic struts directly exposed to blood. We have developed a biocompatible and haemocompatible… (More)
