    Optical coherence tomography (OCT) of overlapping bioresorbable scaffolds: from benchwork to clinical application

    Fully bioresorbable everolimus-eluting vascular scaffolds (BVS: Abbott Vascular) are a novel approach to treating coronary lesions. The ABSORB cohort A and cohort B trials investigated the implantation of 3 mm BVS, up to a maximum length of 18 mm, in simple lesions only, The implantation of overlapping BVS in longer lesions has not previously been reported.
