Aims: We evaluated the safety and performance of a magnesium-based sirolimus-eluting metal scaffold at 3-year follow-up to assess vessel response 2 years beyond scaffold resorption.

Methods and results: BIOSOLVE-II is an international, multi-center first-in man study, including 123 patients with de novo lesions. Pre-dilatation was mandatory and post-dilatation was left to the discretion of the investigators. Dual antiplatelet therapy was recommended for 6 months. At 3 years, 91.1% of patients were angina-free and 8.0% were on dual antiplatelet therapy. Target lesion failure rate was 6.8% (n=8; 2 cardiac deaths, 1 target-vessel myocardial infarction and 5 target lesion revascularizations). No probable or definite scaffold thrombosis was observed. Imaging follow-up was voluntary and serial angiographic assessment at 6, 12, and 36 months was available in 25 patients. In these, a slight increase in in-segment and in-scaffold late lumen loss and diameter stenosis was observed between 12 and 36 months (by 0.11±0.28mm and 0.13±0.30mm for late lumen loss, and by 3.8±10.1% and 4.1±10.2% for diameter stenosis).
