A stent includes a stent body of a cylindrical configuration having outer and inner surfaces, a first coated layer coating at least the outer surface, and a second coated layer coating substantially completely over the first coated layer. The first coated layer is prepared of a first composition comprising a polymer and a vascular intimal hyperplasia inhibitor (preferably argatroban) of a kind, which does not inhibit proliferation of endothelial cells, the weight compositional ratio of the polymer to the inhibitor being within the range of 8:2 to 3:7. On the other hand, the second coated layer is prepared of a polymer alone or a second composition comprising a polymer and a drug, the weight compositional ratio of the drug to 80% by weight of the polymer being less than 20% by weight.

The present invention provides a wire saw which cuts a workpiece using a cutting wire and is capable of adjusting wire tension with high responsiveness. The wire saw includes first and second workpiece cutting units 1A and 1B. Each of the workpiece cutting units 1A and 1B includes a pair of guide rollers 10a and 10b around which a wire W is wound to form a workpiece-cutting wire group. The wire saw further includes a tension detector 18 which detects tension in the wire W between the workpiece cutting units 1A and 1B, and a control device 50. The control device 50 changes a rotational speed of the guide rollers 10a and 10b of at least one of the workpiece cutting units based on the tension detected by the tension detector 18 so as to keep the tension within an acceptable range.

A wire saw apparatus 1 executes cut-machining by pressing a workpiece W against a cutting wire 3 spirally wound around multiple wire guides 2, while running the cutting wire 3 and simultaneously swinging the wire guides 2 as well as the cutting wire 3. The wire saw apparatus 1 includes a controller 8 controlling a position of a workpiece holder 51 for holding the workpiece W. The position is controlled depending on a swing angle of the cutting wire 3 so that machined portion of the workpiece W is shaped into an arc.

The present invention provides a method of cutting a workpiece efficiently with high accuracy by utilizing tension adjusters to approximate tension in a wire in a wire saw to a predetermined target tension while effectively reducing only tension in a winder-side wire. The method comprises a forward-driven cutting step of cutting a workpiece 28 while moving a wire W forward, a first switching step of reversing a driving method of the wire W, a backward-driven cutting step of cutting the workpiece 28 while moving the wire W backward, and a second switching step of reversing a driving direction of the wire W and returning to the forward-driven cutting step, the steps being repeated in this order. In both switching steps, only tension in a winder-side wire is reduced by tension manipulators 18A and 18B. A reduction in target wire tension therefor is performed after completion of deceleration of the wire W in each switching step.
