Cardiac Research: Absorb III

Clinical Evaluation of the Absorb™ Bioresorbable Vascular Scaffold (BVS) System in the Treatment of Subjects with de novo Native Coronary Artery Lesions


The purpose of this study is to  find out about the safety and how effective it
is to treat blockages in the coronary (heart) arteries (blood vessels) with
an investigational (experimental) device called Absorb™ Bioresorbable Vascular
Scaffold (BVS) System (the “Absorb BVS”),  as compared to a commercially approved metallic medicated stent called “XIENCE.”
