Polymeric coating of surface modified nitinol stent with POSS-nanocomposite polymer.

Abstract:

Stent angioplasty is a successful treatment for arterial occlusion, particularly in coronary artery disease. The clinical communities were enthusiastic about the use of drug-eluting stents; however, these stents have a tendency to be a contributory factor towards late stage thrombosis, leading to mortality in a significant number of patients per year. This work presents an innovative approach in self-expanding coronary stents preparation. We developed a new nanocomposite polymer based on poly...
