Abstract

To date, very little is known about the performance of a sirolimus-eluting bioresorbable magnesium scaffold (Mg-BRS) in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI). A multicenter cohort analysis was performed on 69 consecutive AMI subjects treated with Mg-BRS. Procedural success was obtained in all cases, and no in-hospital events were reported. At 9-month follow-up, no cardiac death, target-vessel myocardial infarction, ischemia-driven target lesion revascularization, or Mg-BRS thrombosis was reported. Although our analysis showed encouraging results, larger studies and longer-term follow-up are needed to better understand the potential benefits associated with the use of a Mg-BRS in AMI patients.
