Abstract

Drug-eluting stents (DES) are a major advance in interventional cardiology; however concerns have been raised regarding their long-term safety due to the permanent nature of the polymer. New generation stents with biodegradable polymers (BDS) have recently been developed. The aim of this study was to perform a meta-analysis of randomised controlled trials (RCTs) comparing the safety and efficacy profile of BDS vs. durable polymer DES.
