Bioresorsable Vascular Scaffold (BVS)

Bioresorbable Vascular Scaffold (BVS) is a non-metallic mesh tube that is used for treating Coronary Artery Disease. Though similar to a stent, Bioresorbable Vascular Scaffold (BVS) dissolves on its own soon after the blocked artery starts functioning naturally. BVS looks like a small mesh tube but is smaller than a stent and aids in restoring blood flow to the heart. It takes 12 to 24 months for the BVS to dissolve, and till then, it supports and strengthens the artery to stay open.  The advantages of BVS are aplenty. The patient is spared from the concern of living with the permanent stent for the rest of their life, which supports and strengthens the artery and ensures faster recovery.

What Conditions Can Bioresorbable Vascular Scaffold Treat?

Bioresorbable Vascular Scaffold is used for treating Coronary Artery Disease.


Bioresorbable Vascular Scaffold implantation is a safe procedure, but your doctor would take a call on the procedure depending on the condition of clogged arteries.

Bioresorbable Vascular Scaffold gets dissolved on its own, which means you do not have to live with a stent for the rest of your life. This reduces concerns regarding the impact on other health issues and decreases the risk of symptoms associated with coronary artery disease symptoms.

BVS is made from the material that is used for making dissolving stitches. BVS slowly breaks down into similar components that are found in water and carbon dioxide, allowing the artery to function on its own.

The patient will be able to recover within a week.

You may have to spend overnight in the hospital after Bioresorbable Vascular Scaffold implantation.
