Our initial experience with the Micro Stent PL and its prototype intracoronary stent is described. A total of 206 stents were implanted in 84 patients for threatened closure or restenosis following balloon angioplasty. The stenting procedure was successful and uncomplicated in 83 of 84 patients. Potential advantages of this particular stent relate to its short length, low surface area, expandability over a range of diameters, radiopacity, low profile, and ease of delivery.
