Two studies demonstrate noninferiority of bioresorbable vascular scaffold system

September 2, 2015

LONDON — In two studies of an everolimus-eluting bioresorbable vascular scaffold system, the technology was noninferior to metallic drug-eluting stents, according to presentations from the European Society of Cardiology Congress.

Results from the TROFI II study indicated that the bioresorbable system (Absorb, Abbott Vascular) was noninferior to an everolimus-eluting stent (Xience, Abbott Vascular), and findings from the ABSORB Japan study showed the bioresorbable system to be noninferior to cobalt chromium everolimus-eluting stents.
