Epidemiology, Risk Factors and New Technology in Coronary Stenting

The project will describe the epidemiology (i.e. age, gender, diet, risk factor profile) of Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) patients treated with coronary stents in Brighton and Lille hospitals. It will analyse and quantify the failure rates of coronary artery stenting in the two different populations and elucidate factors which best predict the failure of coronary stenting.A novel concept in designing coronary stent - as drug releasing stents - will be developed and the new type of stents will be assessed in vitro vs. bare metal stents and drug-eluting stents.
