Development of a coronary stent with combination layer of DLC nanolayer with degradable drug eluting coating

Description:

The aim of the project is to develop a novel phynox stent for blood vessels with a coating of a nanometer thick Diamond like Carbon (DLC) layer and additionally a drug eluting coating. This new stent will prevent a typical restenosis reaction in the blood vessels as a result of the slow release of the drug from the drug delivery coating and enables smooth endothelialisation after dissolution of the coating.
