Abstract

The arterial wall reaction to phosphorylcholine-coated metal stents was examined in rabbits and pigs. Compared to non-coated stents, no significant difference was found by angiography and histology. We conclude that although phosphorylcholine-coating does not provoke arterial neointima formation or decrease luminal diameter compared to stainless steel stents, the coating does not seem to reduce restenosis.
