The Palmz-Schatz arterial stent—an expandable mesh tube made of stainless steel—was designed by two cardiologists, Richard Schatz and Julio Palmaz, working at the University of Texas at San Antonio. In 1994 the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) approved its use in cases when balloon angioplasty had failed. Ref: Christina Tan and Richard A. Schatz, “The History of Coronary Stenting,” in Matthew J. Price, ed., Coronary and Endovascular Stents (Elsevier, 2016), pp. 271-280.
