First-in-human evaluation of a novel poly-L-lactide based sirolimus-eluting bioresorbable vascular scaffold for the treatment of de novo native coronary artery lesions: MeRes-1 trial.

The MeRes100 BRS has a hybrid cell design, close cells at the edges and open cells along the length (Figure 1), which ensures optimal vessel wall conformability. It has a low strut thickness of 100 µm and the strut width varies from 150-200 µm, depending on scaffold diameters. The crossing profile is 1.20 mm and 1.25 mm for 3.0 mm and 3.5 mm diameters, respectively. The couplets of tri-axial platinum radiopaque markers fixed circumferentially 120º apart from each other at either end of the scaffold allow the convenience of viewing the scaffold in two orthogonal views during its deployment. For the study, MeRes100 BRS in lengths of 19 and 24 mm and diameters of 2.75, 3.00 and 3.50 mm were used.
