The trend in the development of coronary stents and their associated market segments is for price pressure but continued sales growth in drug-eluting stents, persistent utilization of bare metal stents driven by their lower prices and the emergence within a few years of bioabsorbable/biodegradable stents, which will raise the bar on stent performance, even compared to drug-eluting stents.
