ABSORB IV Randomized Controlled Trial


Clinical Evaluation of the Absorb™ BVS, the Everolimus Eluting Bioresorbable Vascular Scaffold in the Treatment of Subjects with de novo Native Coronary Artery Lesions
If the patient agrees to take part in this Study, they may or may not receive any direct medical benefit. The use of a drug-eluting stent, like XIENCE, has been shown to be able to reduce the re-narrowing of the heart artery. There may be a potential benefit from the Absorb BVS in decreasing the rate of re-narrowing as well.
The fact that the Absorb BVS will not be a permanent part of the wall of the artery may have a long term benefit:
  • It may be easier to do bypass surgery on the affected vessel if needed;
  • It may be easier to do certain diagnostic imaging procedures on the heart if needed;
  • The heart artery may be able to adapt better to changing needs in blood flow in the absence of a device.
The long-term effects and possible benefits of the Absorb BVS are not yet known.
