BIOTRONIK’s Bare Metal Stent Proves Effective and Versatile as Standalone and in Combination with Drug-Coated Balloon in 12-Month Results of BIOFLEX PEACE and BIOLUX 4EVER
BIOTRONIK’s Pulsar-18 bare metal stent (BMS) has yielded high primary patency in a real-world setting, according to the 12-month results of the BIOFLEX PEACE all-comers registry. The findings were presented yesterday at the Charing Cross Symposium in London. Outcomes of the BIOLUX 4EVER study were also presented on the main stage, revealing 12-month results numerically comparable to drug-eluting stents (DES) when the Pulsar-18 was used in combination with the Passeo-18 Lux drug-coated balloon (DCB).
