Drug-eluting stents: from evidence to policy.

Drug-eluting stents are a major breakthrough in cardiology, with the Cypher (Cordis Corporation) and Taxus (Boston Scientific) stents preventing 60-70% of repeat coronary revascularizations, compared with bare metal stents. Both evidence- and risk-based application of drug-eluting stents is expected to create relevant financial and equity problems to most public hospitals, as the cost of drug-eluting stents is over 1000 higher than traditional stents. In the perspective of third-party payers, drug-eluting stents are cost-effective revascularization strategies for a large portion of patients actually undergoing stenting. However, adequate guidelines and reimbursement strategies are still awaited in several countries.[1]
