Haemocompatible Coatings of Coronary Stents


Article Preview

The main goal of the present study was to determine the surface features, surface failures and fatigue properties of coated coronary stents. The quality and the changing of the coatings were examined by different methods. In this paper, the results of the examinations with different coated coronary stents are introduced and the results of the coating experiments are shown as well.
