Left: result in the coronary angiogram with 3 proximal and overlapping scaffolds. One drug eluting stent (SYNERGY 2.5/20mm) was implanted distally, since BVS was not deliverable to this area. MRI at baseline shows open scaffolds in 3D FLASH and 3D TSE, while the distal DES causes significant artefacts not allowing for judgement of vessel patency. Especially the black blood 3D TSE sequences confirm open scaffolds at baseline and after one year in this symptom-free patient.
