Monitoring in vivo absorption of a drug-eluting bioabsorbable stent with intravascular ultrasound-derived parameters a feasibility study.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to investigate the feasibility of using quantitative differential echogenicity to monitor the in vivo absorption process of a drug-eluting poly-l-lactic-acid (PLLA) bioabsorbable stent (BVS, Abbott Vascular, Santa Clara, California). BACKGROUND A new bioabsorbable, balloon-expanded coronary stent was recently evaluated… (More)
