Drug-eluting polymer-coated stents have recently shown promising results in clinical studies. Nevertheless, drug delivery via polymeric biodegradable nanoparticles (NP) may provide a valuable alternative. Site-specific delivery of drug-impregnated NP may be accomplished with a variety of catheters and is neither restricted to stenting in general,.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
