Coronary Stents’ Materials and Examinations of Surface and Expansion Features
In our study we summarise the materials and manufacturing technologies of coronary stents used nowadays. Different testing methods for stent’s features are presented and main expansion features such as recoil and foreshortening are determined. The most frequent failures caused by the expansion of the coronary stents are also shown.
