Bioresorbable scaffolds for the SFA: new developments

The implantation of metallic stents has become a standard procedure to improve the outcome after angioplasty of the superficial femoral artery (SFA). However, the permanent presence of a metallic stent in the femoropopliteal artery is associated with a number of potential disadvantages. Thus, the use of a bioresorbable scaffold, which stabilizes the vessel for a defined period after implantation but is then resorbed, is a compelling concept. This review gives an overview on the use of bioresorbable scaffolds in the peripheral arteries, with an emphasis on the SFA.
