ABSTRACT
The article cites a study, conducted by R. Moreno and colleagues, which compares the effectiveness of drug-eluting stents (DESs) and bare-metal stents (BMSs) for reducing risk for acute myocardial infarction (MI) in patients undergoing stent implantation. They conducted randomized controlled trials that compared DESs with BMSs. They found that DESs are more effective than BMSs for reducing risk for acute MI at 6 to 12 months after implantation.
