TCT 2018: New ABSORB Trial Data Fails To Impress

Executive Summary

Abbott's defunct Absorb BVS stent's efficacy is noninferior to that of the Xience metallic everolimus-eluting stent, new data presented at the Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) conference in San Diego show. But the risk of thrombotic events was still higher with Absorb. This prompted a discussion among panelists whether bioresorbable stents should still be investigated, given the availability of newer-generation drug-eluting stents, which have shown to be safer.
