Short to medium term outcome of Bioresorbable Scaffolds for treatment of coronary stenosis: The Christchurch experience

Bioresorbable Scaffolds (BRS) for the treatment of coronary stenosis involves the use of a temporary polymeric scaffold to maintain normal arterial curvature, allow return of vasomotion and enable positive remodelling without a longterm metallic cage. We aimed to determine short-medium term outcomes of patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with BRS.
