Bioresorbable scaffolds, an evolving technology

Summary

A stent that does its job and then disappear has long been an unmet need and dream of interventional cardiologists. Join J. Ormiston, A. Al Nooryani and W. Wijns as they review the state-of-the-art of these elusive devices beginning with their composition and covering the issues and implications of scaffold thickness, device cost or procedural complexity. Today, with limited trials and data, faced with the fear of a small percentage of stent thrombosis, do these devices have a true utility? What is PSP and how does that optimise the use of current BRS? What does the future hold for this new technology? Watch now…
