Novel Polymer-Free Everolimus-Eluting Stent Fabricated using Femtosecond Laser Improves Re-endothelialization and Anti-inflammation.


:The aim of this study was to fabricate a novel polymer-free everolimus-eluting stent with nanostructure using a femtosecond laser (FSL). The stent were coated with everolimus (EVL) using FSL and electrospinning processes. The surface was rendered hydrophobic, which negatively affected both platelet adhesion (82.1%) and smooth muscle cell response. Animal study was performed using a porcine coronary restenosis model. The study groups were divided into 1) bare metal stent (BMS), 2) poly(L-lactide) (PLA)-based EVL drug eluting stent (DES), 3) commercial EVL-eluting DES, and 4) FSL-EVL-DES. After four weeks of stent implantation, various analyses were performed. Quantitative analysis showed that the amount of in-stent restenosis was higher in the BMS group (BMS; 27.8 ± 2.68%, PLA-based DES; 12.2 ± 0.57%, commercial DES; 9.8 ± 0.28%, and FSL-DES; 9.3 ± 0.25%, n = 10, p < 0.05). Specifically, the inflammation score was reduced in the FSL-DES group (1.9 ± 0.39, n = 10, p < 0.05). The increment in re-endothelialization in the FSL-DES group was confirmed by immunofluorescence analysis. Taken together, the novel polymer-free EVL-eluting stent fabricated using FSL can be an innovative DES with reduced risk of ISR, thrombosis, and inflammation.
