Stents Bioresorbable

This channel includes news and new technology innovations for bioresorbable stents (BRS). These devices are also referred to as bioabsorbable stents, bioresorbable scaffolds and dissolving stents. BRS are designed as an alternative to permanent metallic stent implants, which cause issues in a small number of patients with in-stent restenosis, late-stent thrombosis and require use of long-term antiplatelet therapy. Metallic stents also cause issues with CT and MRI imaging and may prevent future options for coronary bypass graft (CABG) surgery. BRS are supposed to remove avoid these issues by dissolving and disappearing from the vessel after a period of 2-4 years. This, returns the vessel to its natural state and allows for the return of vasodilatation and vasoconstriction. BRS have had some issues in clinical trials not being able to match the performance of standard metallic drug eluting stents (DES) because of their thick stent struts. Newer generation BRS are in development with struts smaller than 100 micros, with will be closer to those of current generation metallic stents

Some of the device technologies discussed in the TCT 2020 late-breaking trial sessions. Top left, the  Medtronic Resolute Onyx stent was the first stent to receive FDA clearance for short duration dual-antiplatelet therapy, which was a big topic and subject of several sessions. Lower left, the Keystone TriGuard 3 TAVR embolic protection device did not demonstrate superiority over TAVR without use of embolic protection. Top right, the Abbott MitraClip.
