Dutch researchers think they may have come up with a better technology for making stents and other endovascular supports. A team from the Thoraxcenter in Rotterdam is developing a method for creating custom-made stents by manufacturing the polymer devices inside the patient's body. The research was discussed for the first time at the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) meeting in Barcelona last month.
