Bioresorbable scaffolds (BRS) represent the latest revolution in interventional cardiology. Thanks to their reabsorptive properties, they provide temporary scaffolding that helps stabilizing the plaque and promotes healing, and then disappear, thus restoring a functional endothelium and vasomotion. Several devices have been tested at the preclinical and clinical stage. Here we review the rationale, development, design and clinical data of the BRS platforms, providing a comprehensive review of the literature.
