Stents, Vascular, Coronary, Balloon-Expandable

Definition : Coronary vascular stents designed to be expanded, applying a constant radial pressure to the artery walls using a high-pressure balloon after delivery through an appropriate stent delivery system. These stents are usually metallic (e.g., stainless steel, platinum), and some are radiopaque or include radiopaque markers for accurate positioning. Balloon-expandable coronary stents are intended to form a scaffold that holds the coronary arteries open to prevent restenosis caused by vessel recoil and/or remodeling.
