Emerging Therapies Session 3, Video 3: Bioerodable Metallic Scaffolds


Session Summary, Emerging Therapies Session 3, Video 3

The Absorb BVS was taken off the market due to safety issues after 1-3 year outcomes; this was perhaps due to overly high expectations of this first-generation device. In this session, data on the newer bioerodable metal scaffolds were presented. Hope remains that bioresorbable devices will emerge as safe, useful devices, but this is still unproven.
