Coronary Artery Stenting addresses all of the major areas of coronary stenting, including the comparison of stents vs balloon angioplasty and stents vs CABG surgery. Stent design, patient selection, and the biology of stent restenosis are also included. To prevent restenosis, pharmacologic approaches, radiation, and the use of drug eluting and coated stents are explored in detail. This book covers recent porgress in clinical research and practice, written by experts in the field of stenting. This collection of comprehensive, state-of-the-art reviews is destined to become a classic.
