BIODEGRADE: Does Stent Design Affect Long-Term Clinical Results?

BIODEGRADE: Does Stent Design Affect Long-Term Clinical Results?

Recent studies have shown that drug-eluting stents with biodegradable polymer and ultrathin struts are safe and effective, including low rates of stent thrombosis. This is why researchers conducted the BIODEGRADE (Biomatrix and Orsiro Drug-Eluting Stents in Angiographic Result in Patients With Coronary Artery Disease) study, which showed the non-inferiority at 18 months of ultrathin biodegradable polymer

DES con polímero bioabsorbible vs Bare Metal Stents en angioplastia primaria

Biodegradable Polymer Myth Also Debunked for ACSs

During TCT 2020 a preview of the results of the comparison of drug-eluting stents (DES) with biodegradable-polymer vs. durable-polymer in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) was presented. The fine print and the final paper for HOST-REDUCE-POLYTECH-ACS are now published, and they lower the expectations set on biodegradable polymers. In patients with ACS undergoing angioplasty, biodegradable-polymer

Struts finos, muy finos y ultrafinos con polímero permanente o degradable ¿Cuál es la mejor combinación?

Thin, Very Thin, and Ultrathin Struts, with Permanent or Biodegradable Polymer… Which Is the Best Combination?

Results from the BIO-RESORT trial at three years, soon to be published in JACC Intv., show that, despite significant differences among stents as regards strut thickness and capability to reabsorb the polymer, there are no apparent safety or efficacy differences among devices. The aim of this study was to determine the three-year safety and efficacy

Courtesy of Dr. Guillermo Migliaro. Technological advancements in drug-eluting stents (DES) have shown significant improvement as regards the safety and efficacy of these devices. DES are considered to be the golden standard for the treatment of percutaneous coronary interventions.   DES with permanent or durable polymers (DP) have been associated with local inflammatory reactions and

Biolimus and Everolimus Eluting Stents in Coronary Artery Disease: Similar Safety?

Courtesy of Dr. Guillermo Migliaro. Events such as very late stent thrombosis and restenosis after first generation DES stenting were associated to the inflammatory response of site implantation. The presence of a durable or permanent polymer was thought to play a central role in said inflammatory process, which caused, among other things, delayed re-endothelialization and
