No country for old stents? Improving long-term patient outcomes with biodegradable polymer drug-eluting stents. 
Abstract:
Biodegradable polymer-coated drug-eluting stents (DESs) represent an attractive approach to improve vascular healing after coronary intervention. The proof-of-concept chain of investigation includes preclinical safety assessment, surrogate end point clinical efficacy studies and large-scale clinical outcome studies, in which noninferiority against benchmark devices is assessed at 12 months, with adjudication of hypothesized clinical advantage at long-term follow-up. The 4-year outcome data from...    »
