Examples

  • On the one hand, the “endothelialization” of a stent makes it so that the stent, and especially the disrupted vessel wall under it, was no longer thrombogenic.

  • Despite the use of drug eluting stents, endothelialization eventually takes place and even patients with drug-eluting stents only have to stay on medicines like Plavix or aspirin for at most a few months.

  • Juan F Granada, MD, medical director of the Skirball Center for Cardiovascular Research at Columbia University Medical Center, presented results from pre-clinical models demonstrating the effectiveness in combining OrbusNeich's pro-healing cell capture with their fully absorbable drug elution technologies to address the shortcomings with current drug eluting stents (DES), namely the safety concerns associated with the delay and often lack of endothelialization.

  • SurModics 'Finale Prohealing Coating technology utilizes a thin layer of natural coating designed to promote rapid population of normal vessel-lining cells (endothelialization) rather than scar tissue, resulting in a healthy, functional artery.

  • As we have reported before, the device is known for its cobalt chromium metal alloy composition, thin struts, high deliverability, and a proprietary silicon carbide PROBIO® coating, that was designed to reduce the thrombogenic properties of metal stents, while facilitating complete endothelialization.

  • The device, now available only in Europe, is known for its cobalt chromium metal alloy composition, thin struts, high deliverability, and a proprietary silicon carbide PROBIO® coating, that was designed to reduce the thrombogenic properties of metal stents, while facilitating complete endothelialization.

  • Magnetic cells could improve endothelialization of stents and reduce in-stent restenosis

  • "While we are seeing some incremental increase in DES use overall, the rates of DES vs bare-metal stents in AMI remain nearly equal, in large part because of beliefs that target lesion revascularization is lower in AMI patients due to differences in plaque morphology and extent of disease, in addition to outstanding concerns related to delayed endothelialization, impaired healing, and the possibility of acquired stent malapposition," he said.

  • Further analysis of 1,904 cross sections (19,028 struts) by investigators using Optimal Coherence Tomography at baseline and again at 6-month follow-up in a subset of 15 randomly selected patients revealed complete endothelialization and 99.5 percent stent strut coverage.
