For the last few decades stents have played a central role in the treatment of artherosclerosis. Although bare-metal stents (BMS) have significantly reduced levels of restenosis rates by 20 or 30% , restenosis rates remain high at around 25% . The introduction of drug-eluting stents have reduced restenosis rates even further , but are associated with high risk of late thrombosis .
