In this paper we describe a theoretical mathematical model of dual drug delivery from a durable polymer coated medical device. We demonstrate how the release rate of each drug may in principle be controlled by altering the initial loading configuration of the two drugs. By varying the underlying microstructure of polymer coating, further control may be obtained, providing the opportunity to tailor the release profile of each drug for the given application.
