The aim of this study was to fabricate a novel polymer-free everolimus-eluting stent with nanostructure using a femtosecond laser (FSL). The stent were coated with everolimus (EVL) using FSL and electrospinning processes. The surface was rendered hydrophobic, which negatively affected both platelet adhesion (82.1%) and smooth muscle cell response. Animal… CONTINUE READING
