  • BACKGROUND Although durable polymer coated drug-eluting stents (DES) are standard care in percutaneous coronary interventions, new stent platforms employing biodegradable polymer based drug delivery are increasingly being used in clinical practice. AIM To evaluate the short- (28 days) and medium-term (90 days) vascular effects of the new biodegradable polymer coated sirolimus-eluting stent - the PROLIM stent. METHODS The objectives of the study were evaluated using standard angiographic and… CONTINUE READING
