A non-metallic mesh tube which is used to treat coronary artery disease is known as a Bioresorsable Vascular Scaffold (BVS). The BVS is a temporary scaffold which will fully resorb with time and it improves the coronary diameter in the patients with ischemic heart disease.
The base material is either metal or polymers in the BVS or naturally-dissolving stents. An important milestone in the treatment of coronary artery disease is the drug-eluting stent (DES). It overcomes recoiling and restenosis to reduce high rate of lesion revascularization which is associated with bare metal stents and balloon angioplasty.
