Coronary stenting : a quantitative angiographic and clinical evaluation
Following implantation of the first coronary stent in 1986 by Jacques Puel in Toulouse, coronary stenting has, from a sequence of pioneering registries in the late 1980's to an era of randomized trials in the 1990's, come to adopt a prominent role in today's practice of interventional cardiology. In its conventional naked metallic form, coronary stenting represents a mechanical approach to a biological problem. When appropriately deployed, the coronary stent can tack back dissections and restore normal flow in vessels with threatened or acute closure and provides a means to optimize elective angioplasty of primary and recurrent stenoses in both native coronary arteries and aorto-coronary vein grafts by enforced remodelling.
