The coating may cover the entire device or the struts of which the device is made. It may be impermeable or porous and can be applied to the inner or outer surfaces of the device, or to both. Coating application technology may vary according to the device intended use and the coating material selected – from dipping, spraying, electro-spinning and using adhesive substances.
