What to expect from second-generation BRS?

Learning Objectives

  • To acquire basic knowledge on mechanical properties of bioresorbable materials
  • To understand the key physicochemical factors of bioresorbable materials and their implications on scaffolding properties and microenvironment
  • To provide an overview of the second-generation BRS, their mechanical properties and the expected clinical benefit

Presentations available when logged in:

  • Synopsis of unresolved issues with first-generation BRS
  • How to manufacture a thinner and stronger scaffold with faster resorption?
  • How to improve blood rheology around struts?
  • Insights from preclinical studies and translation into clinical practice
  • Session evaluation and key learnings
