Stents, Vascular, Coronary

Definition : Vascular stents designed to be deployed into the coronary arteries. These stents are typically metallic and are either balloon-expandable or self-expanding. Some stents are uncoated (i.e., bare metal) while others are coated to give them special capabilities (e.g., to reduce protein and/or platelet adhesion, to elute drugs). Coronary vascular stents are typically used to treat coronary vessel disease; these devices form a scaffold that holds the arteries open without compromising the flexibility of the vessel.
