Guidance has been issued on drug-eluding stents for the treatment of coronary heart disease. Drug-eluting stents are recommended as a possible treatment for people with coronary artery disease only if: the artery to be treated is less than 3 mm in diameter or the affected section of the artery is longer than 15 mm, and the additional cost of the drug-eluting stents over bare-metal stents is 300 or less.
