Bioresorbable scaffolds (BRS)
After the plain-old balloon angioplasty, the introduction of bare-metal and drug-eluting stents, does the advent of Bioresorbable scaffolds (BRS) represent a revolution in interventional cardiology?
This course aims to answer the following questions:
- WHAT are we talking about when referring to BRS technology?
- WHY should I use BRS? (therapy principles and proven advantages)
- WHERE should I use BRS? (in which patients and which lesions)
- HOW should I use BRS? (implantation techniques)
Each module is made up of helpful media such as conversations between experienced people - who we call ‘online proctors’. They share their experiences and insights, as well as looking at cases and practical tips. Each discussion is focused around tips and tricks you can use immediately to help develop the best management strategy for each of your individual patients.
Proctoring team: Ibrahim Al Rashdan, Jean Fajadet, Holger Nef, Corrado Tamburino and Nick E.J. West.
