Assessment of potential relationship between wall shear stress and arterial wall response after bare metal stent and sirolimus-eluting stent implantation in patients with diabetes mellitus.

Int J Cardiovasc Imaging. 2008 Apr;24(4):357-64, PMID: 17972162

Wall shear stress (WSS) has been associated with neointimal hyperplasia (NIH) following bare metal stent (BMS) implantation. Drug-eluting stents (DES) almost abolish NIH. Conversely, diabetes mellitus amplifies NIH response. The association between WSS and arterial wall response following DES and BMS implantation in diabetic patients remains to be evaluated.
