Abstract

The rapid development of stent technologies since the introduction of percutaneous catheter interventions (PCI) 40 years ago requires a continuous further education of interventional cardiologists in everyday clinical practice. Careful selection of the stent products, taking into account the study results, is one of the daily tasks. At the same time, the individually different clinical situations of patients must be considered and incorporated into the decision-making algorithm. This present positional paper is intended to provide an overview of currently available drug-eluting stents/scaffolds and drug-coated balloon catheters in Germany. In addition to the study results of the last few years, the clinical indications are taken into consideration and discussed in detail. Finally, the article deals with the various aspects within the framework of antithrombotic therapy after PCI.
