Abstract [en]

At present, the product information of intracoronary stents provided by the industry contains only limited technical data restricting judgments on the in vivo performance of individual products. Available experimental and clinical evidence suggests that interventional target sites display highly heterogeneous biomechanical behavior needed to be matched by specific stent and stent delivery system characteristics. To allow individualized stent-lesion matching, both, understanding of biomechanical properties of the atherosclerotic coronary artery lesions and expert knowledge of the intracoronary stent systems, are required. Here, the authors review some of the initial data on mechanical properties of coronary artery lesions potentially relevant to stenting and suggest standards for technical documentation of intracoronary stents.
