Vascular stents have been proposed by multiple investigators as potential solutions to abrupt closure and restenosis following PTCA in man [1, 2]. Direct comparison of the various stent designs with regard to safety and efficacy is not possible due to the absence of side by side controlled studies. Since the techniques required to deliver these devices are rapidly evolving, such comparisons would be premature. The largest experience worldwide thus far has been with the Palmaz-Schatz coronary stent developed by Johnson & Johnson Interventional Systems (Warren, New Jersey) and thus will be the subject of this chapter.
