Hishida, H. (n.d.). Restinosis and Stent Fracture Following
Sirolimus-Eluting Stent (SES) Implantation: A serial Quantitative Coronary
Angiography (QCA) and Introvascular Ultrasound (IVUS) Study.
This study aimed to evaluate the impact of stent fracture on restinosis,
even with the elution of sirolimus. Although finding that there are
multiple variables involved in stent fracture, it was found that all 4
lesions which incurred stent failure underwent restinosis. Overall,
although some correlations were found, more research and investigation is
needed to develop a solid conclusion.
