Abstract

The relationship between the unique nature of new stent technology and the development of the stent industry is unclear. Previous research has not characterised the term ‘new technology’, and so could not investigate its unique impact on the formation and activities of a new industry. This paper reviews the historical development of stent and related technologies, including catheters and balloons. It describes the development of interdependencies between the related technologies and the growth of the stent industry. It reports on this aspect of research being performed in order to understand the nature of the relationship between a new technology and the strategic activities of a new technology industry.
