Interventional Applicability of Biodegradable Polymeric Stents in a Por-cine Model

Carsten Bünger
Introduction: Biodegradable polymeric stents have demonstrated a potential alternative to standard metal stents, but to date, human experience with such devices is limited. The aim of this study is to assess the technical feasibility and biocompatibility of a novel biodegradable stent based on poly(L-lactide)[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
