Surgeons refer to this classic text again and again, partly because of the clarity of its innovative format, so useful and popular that it has been copied by others. This technical manual, now in its fourth edition, profiles all of the commercially available stents and some of those in early registry. The technical specifications of the stent and delivery systems are tabulated; each stent is illustrated in its unexpanded, mounted and expanded form (depending on the type of stent). Angiograms show the stent in situ. Handbook of Coronary Stents is a necessary adjunct for all those involved in interventional cardiology.
