Summary

Discussion on the rationale for and design of bioabsorbable scaffolds from a pioneer in the field. Key concepts in vessel healing post PCI are revisited, the three phases being 1) revascularisation/scaffold deployment (imaging guided), 2) restenosis prevention (anatomical healing) and 3) long term restoration of vascular function (physiological healing). Data from the ABSORB trial are presented, with results from the OCT sub-study demonstrating very good strut apposition (92%) at 6 months post-PCI. Pre-clinical safety data from a porcine model are also discussed.
