An in-depth look into the BIOFLOW trials: a modern limus-eluting stent with bioabsorbable polymer

With an unrestricted educational grant from BIOTRONIK

Learning Objectives

  • To understand the characteristics of the Orsiro hybrid DES and its potential benefits
  • To gain insight into the comparative clinical efficacy of the Orsiro bioabsorbable polymer stent versus an everolimus-eluting durable polymer stent
  • To assess the value of OCT imaging as intermediate safety endpoint in patients treated with bioabsorbable polymer stents
