This study addresses the need to develop an instrument and supporting protocol to evaluate the tendency for a bare or drug coated stent to shed particles into the vasculature of a patient. The resultant experiments demonstrated that two types of instruments each properly detected, sized and counted better than 90% of the injected calibration particles within four minutes.

The American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) [35] and Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI)/ International Organization for Standardization (ISO) [36] committees have drafted or passed standards [38, 39] to address the release of particulates into the vasculature by drug eluting stents during deployment and implantation. A new AAMI…
