(University of Pittsburgh) Stents used to widen blocked arteries must be closely monitored after implantation to ensure that they do not re-narrow, a common complication called restenosis.Pitt's Youngjae Chun will lead a study to develop an electronic stent that can be implanted in a minimally invasive procedure and measure significant physiological changes with the development of restenosis. The device will provide real-time monitoring to help prevent subsequent heart attack or stroke.
