Title Bioresorbable scaffolds : from basic concept to clinical applications / [edited by] Patrick W Serruys, Yoshinobu Onuma
Published Boca Raton, FL : CRC Press/Taylor & Francis Group, 2017


Description 1 online resource
Contents Principles of bioresorption, vascular application -- From bench test to preclinical assessment -- Lesson learned from preclinical assessment -- Imaging to evaluate the bioresorbable scaffold : a corelab perspective, methodology of measurement and assessment -- Clinical evidence of randomised and non-randomised trials : personal perspective -- Clinical evidence in specific patient subsets : personal perspective -- Complications (incidence, diagnosis, potential mechanisms and treatment) -- Tips and tricks to implant BRS -- Emerging technologies (pre-CE mark, pre-FA, pre-PMDA and pre-CFDA)
Summary This book focuses on the coronary bioresorbable scaffold, a new interventional treatment for coronary artery disease, differentiated from a permanent metallic stent. The book provides an overview of the technology including non-clinical studies and clinical evidences in order to help clinicians understand the appropriate application of the technology and the optimal techniques of implantation. It covers the basics of bioresorbable scaffolds; bench test results; preclinical studies; clinical evidences; and tips and tricks of implantation
