Arterial Healing and Stent Failure Following Percutaneous Coronary Intervention

thesis
posted on 2024-06-22, 02:52 authored by JASON NOGIC
Coronary artery disease is a leading cause of death and suffering globally. Stents help open narrowed or blocked arteries but have risks and are prone to re-narrowing or suddenly blocking resulting in suffering or death. Understanding high-risk patients and why stents fail can help guide personalized treatment, reducing risk. Our research found that certain stent coating and procedural strategies, along with unique identifiers showing inflammation around the coronary arteries, and patients with diabetes mellitus are at increased risk of stent failure. Despite this, anti-inflammatory medications administered at time of heart attack may reduce this risk.
