Bioresorbable Vascular Scaffold

The Bioresorbable Vascular Scaffold (BVS) is a non metallic mesh tube that is used to treat a narrowed artery. This is similar to a stent, but slowly dissolves once the blocked artery can function naturally again and stay open on its own.

Bioresorbable vascular scaffolds (BVS) are designed to provide mechanical support and drug delivery similar to the DES (drug eluting stent), followed by complete resorption over several years. Recent trials have demonstrated clinical non-inferiority of the BVS compared with contemporary DES. BVS is designed to help open up a blocked artery in the heart and restore blood flow to the heart muscle. BVS gradually dissolves once the artery can stay open on its own, potentially allowing the blood vessel to function naturally again.
