Event Details: 

The talk will provide an overview of device development in percutaneous coronary intervention, from coronary angioplasty to fully bioresorbable scaffolds. The presentation will focus on a new generation of innovative devices developed by Elixir Medical, that are designed to actively adapt to the changing needs of vascular physiological and work in harmony with the artery to heal the diseased artery. These devices return the pulsatile motion of a beating coronary artery and demonstrate adaptive vascular remodeling that is observed in normal physiologic state. The devices have potential to provide clinical benefits in range of indications from cardiovascular to peripheral vascular diseases.
