Overview: 

Process of coating the coronary stent with a nano polymer. Conventionally Bare Metal Stents (BMS) are used in the Coronary Artery Diseases,which also cause stent-induced injury to the  vessel wall, strut thickness, etc

Key Features: 

  • The invention uses polymer composite as the coating material over the normal stent It is a low cost process to develop the coating technique, which can also control the thickness of the coating in nm scale
  • The coating proves to be anti-restenotic and anti-thrombotic. First phase preclinical trials are underway
