To the Editor It was with great interest that we read the article by Buiten et al.1 The authors are to be commended on their approach to addressing this important topic.
There were a number of points that drew our attention. First, we noted that the 3 different stents used in the trial were all coated with different eluting drugs. Is there a way in which one can separate the effect of the strut size vs the drug effect vs the polymer type?
