What is a Bioresorbable Scaffold? Temporary implantable device restores blood flow to diseased arteries Provides radial support to artery during healing process Elutes drug to limit excess tissue formation Encapsulates within vessel wall Dissolves from the body over time and restores natural vessel motion Restores Blood Flow Supports Vessel Healing Dissolves and Restores Motion

Slide 11

The Appeal of a Bioresorbable Scaffold Value to Physician and Patient Preserves maximum flexibility for future treatment options (bypass grafting, MRI, CT) Allows artery to return to its natural state to restore freedom of movement May reduce the rate of future clinical events “The ideal of a stent that does its job and disappears is a valuable long-term goal, especially in young patients with long life-expectancy.” EuroPCR 2017 course director Dr. William Wijns “I think it’s not at all inconceivable to think that a better device… …will allow what will hopefully be shown to be long-term advantages of no longer having the permanent metal frame in the vessel…” Gregg Stone, MD, New-York Presbyterian/Columbia University quoted in tctmd.com1 1.
