ABUNDES-VELASCO, Arturo et al. Human Pilot Study of Bare-Metal Stent: INC-01. Rev. invest. clín. [online]. 2020, vol.72, n.1, pp.32-36.  Epub 04-Mayo-2021. ISSN 2564-8896.


The cost of performing a percutaneous coronary intervention is considerably high for the patient as well as for health systems, which have promoted the development of local technology to help meet the need for these devices.


The INC-01 bare-metal stent was developed at the National Institute of Cardiology in Mexico City and was first implanted on porcine models with technical success in 100% of the evaluated parameters.

Presentation of Cases:

We present the first three cases of patients with ischemic heart disease, to whom the INC-01 bare-metal stent was implanted. Intracoronary ultrasonography was performed post-stent implantation, showing all the characteristics of implant success during evaluation and clinical follow-up.


Angiography and intracoronary ultrasound were carried out demonstrating that the INC-01 bare-metal stent has physical, biological, and histological characteristics similar to those found in commercial metallic stents.

Palabras llave : Bare-metal stent; Coronary angiography; Intracoronary ultrasound.
