Title
The evolution of cardiovascular stent materials and surfaces in response to clinical drivers: A review
Abstract

This review examines cardiovascular stent materials from the perspective of a range of clinical drivers and the materials that have been developed in response to these drivers. The review is generally chronological and outlines how stent materials have evolved from initial basic stainless steel devices all the way through to the novel biodegradable devices currently being explored. Where appropriate, pre-clinical or clinical data that influenced decisions and selections along the way is referenced. Opinions are given as to the merit and direction of various ongoing and future developments.
