Abstract

Systems and methods for overcoming or preventing vascular flow restrictions which involve:(1) providing at least one structural element (12) within or about a vessel having a vascular flow restriction; and (2) equipping the structural element (12) with bio-lining (14) such that it restores blood flow and minimizes, if not eliminates, the interface between blood and non-biological materials to thereby prevent stenosis and/or restenosis.
