Abstract

Drug-eluting stents are considered a breakthrough in the treatment of coronary artery disease owing to their ability to reduce rates of restenosis and the subsequent need for target lesion revascularization. The literature has limited reports of long-term results of drug-eluting stent implantation with respect to vascular integrity and coronary endothelial function. Thus, we review the currently available data with use of different drug-eluting stents and their effects on endothelial cell dysfunction.
