Robert E Fischell, Tim A Fischell: Intra-arterial stent with the capability to inhibit intimal hyperplasia. Medical Innovative Technologies R & D Partnership, October 22, 1991: US05059166 (351 worldwide citation)

Intra-arterial stents are frequently used subsequent to balloon angioplasty to maintain arterial patency. The most frequent cause for failure to maintain patency is the rapid growth of the injured arterial tissue through the openings in the stent, which rapid growth is called "intimal hyperplasia." ...
