Beyond Drug-Coated Stents

Executive Summary

'Drug-coated stents' success will usher in a new era in interventional cardiology, argues Marty Leon, MD, one of the nation's top interventional cardiologists. He sees interventionalists taking the lead in new areas and expanding their presence in others, such as interventional radiology, and interventional neurology. New nanotechnologies will be used to manufacture stents to ensure better adhesion of therapeutic agents, and these will need new access technologies and imaging systems, for example.
