Vascular response to bioresorbable polymer sirolimus-el uting stent vs. permanent polymer everolimus-eluting stent at 9-month follow-up: an o ptical coherence tomography sub-study from the CENTURY II trial


The Ultimaster bioresorbable polymer sirolimus-eluting stent (BP-SES) is a newly developed drug-eluting stent (DES) that consists of a thin-s trut, cobalt chromium with bioresorbable polymer coated only albuminally. We sought to c ompare tissue coverage in coronary lesions treated with BP-SES with the XIENCE permanent polymer everolimus- eluting stent (PP-EES) using optical coherence tomography (OC T).
