My father has a coronary artery blockages and he needs a stent. His doctor wants to place in his artery drug-eluting stent. I heard that drug-eluting stents are more thrombogenic than bare metal stents. What do you know about that? What can you tell me about drug-eluting stent safety? Thanks!

I can tell you that The Food and Drug Administration approved drug-eluting stent for angioplasty procedures to open clogged coronary arteries. In most cases, a stent is left permanently in the artery to keep the vessel open after angioplasty. In last few years new generations of drug-eluting stents are much safer.
