Bioresorbable vascular scaffolds in coronary bifurcation lesions: The next frontiers?

Abstract

KEY POINTS:

  • There are now data supporting the use of the Absorb everolimus-eluting bioresorbable vascular scaffold (BVS) for treating non-complex coronary lesions.
  • The complete bioresorption of the scaffold after 2–3 years is an important advantage over metallic stents because there will not be a nidus for stent-related thrombotic complications.
  • The safety and efficacy of BVS has yet to be determined in patients with coronary bifurcation lesions
