ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the cost effectiveness of drug-eluting coronary stents. Stating that the cost of 2 commercially available drug-eluting stents is high, the author explores the reasons for the high costs of these devices. The author says that the history of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) procedure and the funding model for developing new technologies may provide answers to the issue.
