Monitoring of Coronary Stenting

Coronary stenting is the most common way of treating symptomatic ischaemic cardiopathy and stenosis of venous bypasses. Restenosis actually occurs in 30% of patients treated with non-medicated stents while "drug eluting" stents have reduced the incidence of restenosis by approximately a quarter and have proved particularly effective in diabetic patients and in the treatment of lesions in small vessels1 . The spread of endovasal procedures makes the development of non-invasive methods such as MSCT extremely useful in evaluating the patency of the vessels treated.
