ABSTRACT: Drug-eluting stents (DES) are the current gold standard for percutaneous treatment of coronary artery disease. However, DES are associated with a non-negligible risk of long-term adverse events related to persistence of foreign material in the coronary artery wall. In addition, DES implantation causes permanent caging of the native vessel, thus impairing normal vasomotricity and the possibility of using non-invasive coronary imaging or preforming subsequent bypass surgery. On the contrary, coronary bioresorbable stents (BRS) may provide temporary mechanical support to coronary wall without compromising the subsequent recovery of normal vascular physiology, and have the potential to prevent late adverse events related to permanent elements. Several types of BRS have been introduced into clinical practice in Europe or are being tested. However, most of available clinical data relate to a single BRS, the Absorb bioresorbable Vascular Scaffold (Absorb BVS) (Abbott Vascular, Santa Clara, CA). Despite encouraging clinical results, no societal guidelines are available on the use of BRS in clinical practice.A panel of Italian expert cardiologists assembled under the auspices of the Italian Society of Interventional Cardiology (SICI-GISE) for comprehensive discussion and consensus development, with the aim to provide recommendations on the use of bioresorbable stents in terms of clinical indications, procedural aspects, post-percutaneous coronary angioplasty pharmacologic treatment and follow-up. Based on current evidence and BRS availability in Italian cath-labs, the panel decided unanimously to provide specific recommendations for the Absorb BVS device. These recommendations do not necessarily extend to other BRS, unless specified, although significant overlap may exist with Absorb BVS, particularly in terms of clinical rationale.

ABSTRACT: OBJECTIVES: The authors conducted a systematic pairwise and network meta-analysis to assess optimal treatment strategies in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and multivessel coronary artery disease (MV-CAD) undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). BACKGROUND: Patients with STEMI and MV-CAD have a worse prognosis than those with single-vessel CAD. The optimal revascularization strategy for these patients is uncertain. METHODS: Studies of revascularization strategies for MV-CAD in STEMI patients undergoing primary PCI published between 2001 and 2015 were identified using an electronic search. Pairwise and network meta-analyses were performed for 3 PCI strategies in prospective and retrospective studies: 1) infarct-related artery (IRA)-only PCI; 2) single procedure MV-PCI; and 3) staged MV-PCI. Information on study design, inclusion and exclusion criteria, and clinical outcomes was extracted. The outcomes of interest were short-term and long-term mortality. RESULTS: Thirty-two studies (13 prospective and 19 retrospective) with 54,148 patients (IRA-only PCI [n = 42,112], single procedure MV-PCI [n = 8,138], and staged MV-PCI [n = 3,898]) were included in the analysis. Pairwise meta-analyses showed that staged MV-PCI was associated with lower short-term and long-term mortality compared with both IRA-only PCI and single stage MV-PCI, whereas IRA-only PCI was associated with lower mortality compared with single stage MV-PCI. Staged MV-PCI was also associated consistently with improved survival in network analyses. CONCLUSIONS: The present systematic review and meta-analysis supports the hypothesis that in patients with MV-CAD presenting with STEMI undergoing primary PCI, a staged multivessel revascularization strategy may improve early and late survival.

ABSTRACT: OBJECTIVES: The objective of this study was to investigate mid-term clinical outcomes of patients treated with 'full-plastic jacket' (FPJ) everolimus-eluting Absorb bioresorbable vascular scaffold (BRS) implantation. BACKGROUND: FPJ with BRS may represent an interesting option for patient with diffuse coronary artery disease (CAD), but data on the clinical impact of FPJ using the Absorb BRS are scant. METHODS: FPJ was defined as the implantation of >56 mm of overlapping BRS in at least one vessel. We compared outcomes of patients receiving Absorb FPJ vs. non-FPJ within the multicenter prospective RAI Registry. RESULTS: Out of 1505 consecutive patients enrolled in the RAI registry, 1384 were eligible for this analysis. Of these, 143 (10.3%) were treated with BRS FPJ. At a median follow-up of 649 days, no differences were observed between FPJ and non-FPJ groups in terms of the device-oriented composite endpoint (DoCE) (5.6% vs. 4.4%, p = 0.675) or the patient-related composite endpoint (PoCE) (20.9% vs. 15.9%, p = 0.149). Patients receiving FPJ had higher rates of target vessel repeat revascularization (TVR) (11.2% vs. 6.3%, p = 0.042). In the FPJ group, there was no cardiac death and only one (very late) stent thrombosis (ST) (0.7%). CONCLUSIONS: Mid-term outcomes of a FPJ PCI strategy in the setting of diffuse CAD did not show a significant increase in composite device- and patient-related events, with rates of cardiac death and ST comparable to non-FPJ Absorb BRS implantation. However, these findings are hypothesis generating and requiring further validation.

ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND: Patients with small vessel disease (SVD) are at higher risk of adverse events after PCI compared to non-SVD patients. In this subset, the use of bioresorbable vascular scaffolds (BVS) has raised particular concern. OBJECTIVE: We aimed to compare outcomes of Absorb BVS versus a 2nd-generation metallic everolimus-eluting stents (EES) in the SVD setting, by pooling patients from three large, prospective studies. METHODS: Patients with SVD (reference vessel diameter ≤2.75 mm by QCA) and treated with Absorb BVS were identified in the Italian RAI and the MAASSTAD-Absorb registries. EES controls were identified in the COMPARE II Trial. We performed a propensity-score matching using several clinical and angiographic variables. Implantation technique was not object of matching, being device-specific. RESULTS: Out of 4635 enrolled subjects, 1147 belonged to the SVD population. After matching, we obtained 337 pairs of patients. High clinical and angiographic complexity was found in both groups. Predilation and postdilation rates were significantly higher in BVS patients. No differences were found in terms of the device-oriented composite end-point at 1-year (HR = 1.08, 95%CI 0.5-2.3, P = .8) and 2-years (HR = 1.28, 95% CI: 0.68-2.43, P = .5). Notwithstanding, higher incidence of definite/probable stent thrombosis was observed in the BVS group at 1 year (HR 4.7, 95%CI 0.8-31.4, P = .08) and 2-years (HR = 8.34 95%CI 1.1-60.2, P = .04). CONCLUSION: In this propensity-matched analysis pooling SVD patients of three large prospective studies, incidence of composite device-related events was comparable between BVS and EES up to 2 years follow-up. However, higher rates of stent thrombosis were found in the BVS group.
