Comparison of inflammatory response after implantation of sirolimus- and paclitaxel-eluting stents in patients on hemodialysis

Heart and Vessels, 05/17/2012

Paclitaxel–eluting stents (PES), which inhibit in–stent restenosis and cardiac events in hemodialysis patients, may play an important role in suppression of chronic inflammatory response in target lesions as compared with SES. Chronic continuous inflammation plays an important role after implantation of both types of stent with regard to in–stent restenosis in patients on hemodialysis.
