Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In clinical practice, the operator must decide which stent is most appropriate for the patient. This article focuses on the features of stent design that make a specific stent more or less suitable for a particular type of lesion or anatomy: the "average" coronary lesion, the lesion situated on a curve, the ostial lesion, the bifurcational lesion, the lesion located at the left main stem, the calcified lesion, the chronic total occlusion, the small vessel, the saphenous vein graft, acute or threatened vessel closure, and special situations such as coronary aneurysms and perforations.
