Bioresorbable scaffolds (BRS) represent a novel horizon in interventional cardiology for the treatment of coronary artery disease. The technology was introduced to overcome limitations of current metallic drug-eluting stents such as late in-stent restenosis and permanently caging the vessel. The concept of the BRS is to provide temporal support to the vessel during healing before being degraded and resorbed by the body, promoting restoration of the vessel vasomotion. Currently, there are… CONTINUE READING
