The article presents information on the effectiveness of warfarin with a combination of a drug-eluting stent (DES) technology. It discusses the emergence and effectiveness of the DES technology replacing the in-stent restenosis. However, the problem in stent thrombosis has been cited due to the manipulation of the healing processes and it takes time in stent implantation.
