Abstract

Bioresorbable vascular scaffolds (BVS) have become an attractive option in the field of percutaneous coronary intervention due to the complete resorption process that occurs over a few years. On the other hand, current generation devices have several limitations when compared to metallic drug-eluting stents including bulky struts and relatively less radial strength, and it has been indicated that an optimized implantation strategy is required. In this article, various tips and tricks to optimize implantation of current generation BVS are discussed.
