Title:
Histopathological comparison of biodegradable polymer and permanent polymer based sirolimus eluting stents in a porcine model of coronary stent implantation 
Abstract:
Biodegradable stent coatings were recently introduced as a potential solution to overcome sustained inflammatory responses observed with permanent polymer-based drug-eluting stents. In a preliminary study, selected biodegradable or permanent polymer-based sirolimus-eluting stent (SES) formulations were screened for effectiveness in comparison to bare metal stents (BMS) at 28 days. Subsequently, the most favourable SES formulation was compared to commercially available SES (Cypher (TM)) at 28,90...    »
