Novel stents and scaffolds from Asia

Learning Objectives

  • To become familiar with stent, scaffold that have been developed in Asia
  • To learn about potential indications and specific techniques for deployment of novel stents and scaffolds
  • To appreciate the potential of nanotechnologies for novel drug delivery systems in development
