It is pertinent that they are considered in the differential diagnosis of a space occupying lesion or a thromboembolic event in the presence of a vascular graft. 8 Future trends The potential adverse effects of the contact between implanted materials and tissues, highlighted in this chapter, cause concerns and lead to efforts to seek more biocompatible materials. DES comprise a rapidly developing area as they have been successful in reducing in-stent re-stenosis. The main cause of concern in the use of DES is related to the rate of stent thrombosis and incomplete endothelialisation.
