Bioresorbable Scaffolds (Stents)
This is a biodegradable device that can be used like a coronary stent.
Advantages of bioresorbable scaffolds
The perceived advantage of this device is that it dissolves over time so does not remain in your heart indefinitely. However, research has not proven the safety of these devices so they are not currently clinically recommended. New devices are being developed and One Heart Clinic will keep you appraised on these developments.
