Abstract

Everolimus-eluting stents have become the most commonly used drug-eluting stents (DES), in part because of data from clinical trials showing significantly reduced rates of revasculization, myocardial infarction (MI), and stent thrombosis with the PROMUS or XIENCE V everolimus-eluting, cobalt-chromium stent compared with early generation paclitaxel-eluting stents.
