However, bare metal stents (BMS) resulted in high rates of restenosis and led to the development of drug-eluting stents (DES). Those first-generation DES were followed by successive generations of DES that included improvements, such as biodegradable and more biocompatible polymers. Despite the superiority of the current DES compared to BMS, a subset of patients still receives BMS. The following paper reviews the literature comparing the safety and efficacy of newer generation DES to BMS in such patients and ultimately challenges the use of BMS in contemporary current DES era.
