An Improved and Superior Vascular Stent
The technology provides a novel stent which discourages restenosis by utilizing the body’s inherent antithrombogenic defenses to grow an endothelial cell lining along the inner wall of the stent. The endothelial cell lining is coated on the stent either before the stent is placed in the vessel or may be grown after stent is placed. The endothelial cells utilized to coat the stent may be genetically modified to enhance the growth of the endothelial cells into a homogeneous lining. This stent employs a continuous lining, rather than a mesh,in order to have a homogeneous endothelial cell lining. A multiple-layer polymer coatings, various anticoagulant drugs, cell cycle inhibitors and vascular endothelial growth factors are incorporated into the stent’s lining. The end result is a smooth uniform coating to support confluent growth of a homogeneous lining of endothelial cell linings within a short period of time, providing long-term protection against restenosis.
