1. Rapid Evaluation of Vessel HEaling After AngiopLasty (REVEAL) trial: rationale, objectives and design

    Background: Novel approaches to modify stents have been developed to address the limitations of bare-metal stents (BMS) and drug-eluting stent (DES), aiming for ideal features, such as decreased restenosis rates with decreased thrombogenicity and without the need for long-term dual antiplatelet therapy. Rationale: The Assessment of The LAtest Non-Thrombogenic Angioplasty Stent (ATLANTA) trial was the first-in-man study to show the safety and efficacy of the Polyzene-F coated CATANIA stent (CeloNova BioSciences, Newnan, Georgia, USA) as an alternative to both BMS and DES. The stent was found to be associated with a good clinical outcome with no vessel thrombosis and a ...
