Beaumont Health System Launches Research Trial of Bioresorbable Heart Scaffold
Date:7/29/2013

Royal Oak, MI (PRWEB) July 29, 2013

Beaumont Health System has joined a multicenter, international research study of a new temporary heart device that helps keep an artery open following angioplasty, then is broken down and absorbed by the body.

The research will compare the effectiveness of the new “disappearing” device, the AbsorbTM Bioresorbable Vascular Scaffold made by health care company Abbott, with drug-eluting, metal stents that are commonly placed in heart arteries as a permanent implant. Absorb is referred to as a scaffold to indicate it is temporary in nature, unlike a permanent metallic stent. It is made of polylactide, a material commonly used in medical implants such as dissolving sutures.

Coronary artery stents were approved for use in the United States in 1994. Similar to a mesh tube, stents prop open a heart artery after a blockage is cleared with a procedure called angioplasty.

In angioplasty, a doctor threads a catheter, or hollow tube, into the arteries of the heart through a small incision in the groin or wrist, with a tiny balloon at its tip that, once inflated, pushes a blockage against the artery wall to open the artery and improve blood flow to the heart. Angioplasty is often followed by insertion of a stent coated with medication, called a drug-eluting stent, at the site of the blockage to keep the vessel open and prevent renarrowing. Metallic stents are a permanent implant in the wall of the artery.

"Stents have revolutionized the treatment of heart blockages by helping many patients to avoid having repeat angioplasty procedures and in some cases open-heart surgery,” says Amr Abbas, M.D., Beaumont’s director of interventional cardiology research and the study’s principal investigato
