Yet another thing to throw a clincher in.
Late Risk with Drug Coated Stents: from R. Fogoros, M.D.
Some interventional cardiologists are beginning to talk about a problem some of them think they have seen with drug coated stents. The problem is late, sudden occlusion of some of these stents, apparently soon after the patient stops taking anti-platelet medications. Most of this is speculation now, and has NOT been researched thoroughly. I hope this link works. I still do not understand why I can leave a link sometimes and it works, and other times it doesn't. Arghhh.
What do you think about these types of articles? I mean the ones where there is little research? Should they let the public know before knowing for sure? Or are we entitled to know?
