Biocompatibility of Coronary Stents.
Cardiovascular disease is the dominant cause of mortality in developed countries, with coronary artery disease (CAD) a predominant contributor. The development of stents to treat CAD was a significant innovation, facilitating effective percutaneous c

Bose-Einstein condensation of excitons in Cu2O: progress over 30 years.
Experiments on Bose-Einstein condensation (BEC) of excitons in the semiconductor Cu2O started over 30 years ago, as one of the first serious attempts at exciton BEC. Early claims were based on spectroscopic signatures and transport data which have si

Comparison among patients≥75 years having percutaneous coronary angioplasty using drug-eluting stents versus bare metal stents.
Limited data are available on long-term efficacy and safety of drug-eluting stents (DES) in elderly patients who underwent PCI. A total of 635 consecutive patients aged ≥75 years who underwent PCI were enrolled at 2 European centers. Of these, 170 pa

The role of genetics in coronary artery bypass surgery patients under 30 years of age.
We undertook genetic assessment of coronary artery disease (CAD) in 20 patients aged 30 years or less undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) surgery, to investigate the prognostic value of pre-defined genes.

Controlled Slow-Release Drug-Eluting Stents for the Prevention of Coronary Restenosis: Recent Progress and Future Prospects.
Drug-eluting stents (DES) have become more widely used by cardiologists than bare metal stents (BMS) because of their better ability to control restenosis. However, recognized negative events, particularly including delayed or incomplete endotheliali

The debate about physician assistance in dying: 40 years of unrivalled progress in medical ethics?
Some issues in medical ethics have been present throughout the history of medicine, and thus provide us with an opportunity to ascertain: (1) whether there is progress in medical ethics; and (2) what it means to do good medical ethics. One such peren
