Ultra-hydrophilic stent platforms promote early vascular healing and minimise late tissue response: a potential alternative to second-generation drug-eluting stents

EuroIntervention Journal

Simple surface modifications can enhance coronary stent performance. Ultra-hydrophilic surface treatment of contemporary bare metal stents was assessed in vivo to verify whether such stents can provide long-term efficacy comparable to second-generation drug-eluting stents while promoting healing comparably to BMS.
