Stents, Vascular, Coronary, Balloon-Expandable, Bioactive-Coated
Definition : Balloon-expandable coronary stents that include a stable, nonlixiviation (nonleaching) bioactive drug, such as heparin or phosphorylcholine, on their surface. Bioactive-coated coronary stents are intended to reduce the risk of thrombosis associated with stent implantation by inhibiting coagulation mechanisms related to thrombin formation and platelet activation.
