Title

Promoting Medical Technology Innovation: Lessons Learned from the Case of Bare Metal Coronary Stents

Abstract Summary

We used Thomson Reuters database to collect relevant patents related to coronary artery stents from 1984 until 1994 (FDA approval of the first stent). Using Hoover’s database, we organized all inventors into 4 categories (private companies, public companies, individuals, non-profit entities).
