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

r. “This new bioabsorbable vascular scaffold is the latest technique in heart treatment in interventional cardiology.”

Research has shown that the support of a coronary stent is only needed for a few months after implantation while the artery wall is healing. Although researchers hoped to create a temporary scaffold that dissolved after doing its job, there were many scientific challenges. A decade ago, scientists at Abbott started development of Absorb and now Abbott is the first company in the world to begin testing a bioresorbable vascular scaffold in patients in the United States.

The Absorb™ BVS is available in Europe, Middle East and parts of Asia. It is an investigational device not available for sale in the U.S.

ABSORB III will enroll approximately 2,250 patients, the majority in the U.S.

For more information on the Beaumont study, including enrollment criteria, call Diedre Brunk, Beaumont Cardiology Research at 248-898-5580.
