medication-releasing stent

This looks to be a rare and little-used acronym in a cardiology context. When I search the phrase "medication-releasing stent" online, I just get 10 hits from Google and none of them is from a professional medical source. Nevertheless, it seems to make sense in this case.

See above in the Discussion ... this could also well be Myocardial Revascularization Surgery. I'll have to research this a bit more, also wait for confirmation from our learned medical colleagues to be sure it fits.
