Stent/Grafts, Vascular, Coronary
Definition : Stent/grafts designed for percutaneous deployment into the coronary arteries. These devices typically consist of a metallic (e.g., balloon expandable) meshlike stent covered with a synthetic graft such as Dacron or polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE). Some devices consist of a layer of expanded PTFE placed between two stainless steel stents. Coronary stent/grafts are intended for emergency treatment of perforations in native coronary arteries and/or saphenous vein bypass grafts.
