Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) has rapidly evolved over the past 30 years as technology has sought to improve clinical outcomes by addressing pathophysiologic complications arising from the intervention. Stents were designed to resolve the drawbacks of balloon angioplasty by providing radial support to prevent vessel recoil, by sealing coronary dissections, and by preventing abrupt vessel closure. The conceptualization of an ideal drug-eluting fully bioresorbable scaffold (BRS), whether metallic or polymeric, would theoretically address the adverse aspects of permanent metallic stents. In this review of the literature, we will discuss the impact these novel fully BRS platforms have on vascular pathophysiology following PCI.
