s RotaGlide, an emulsion originally designed to reduce catheter friction during other cardiovascular procedures. To address unresolved issues about biocompatibility with the often-used drug-eluting stents, the researchers studied additional patients for a longer followup period. None of the patients who received the drug-eluting stents developed blood clots or restenosis.

"We found that this emulsion is a safe, simple and effective aid for stent delivery in the rare cases where stents could not previously be inserted," Dr. Savage said.
