Abstract

It has been shown that the articulation site in the Palmaz-Schatz stent is a frequent site for restenosis. In this communication, we report on a new method to eliminate the articulation site in the Palmaz-Schatz stent to provide better lesion coverage and decrease the probability of plaque prolapse at the articulation site. We believe that this method is simple and effective, and that it serves an important clinical purpose.
