REVA Medical, Inc. secured CE Mark for the Fantom Sirolimus-Eluting Bioresorbable Scaffold.
Fantom is the only bioresorbable scaffold (BRS) made from Tyrocore, REVA’s proprietary tyrosine-derived polymer. Tyrocore is inherently radiopaque, making Fantom the first and only BRS that is visible under x-ray. Fantom is designed with a thin strut profile while maintaining strength. Thinner profiles have been shown to improve deliverability and vessel healing.
“Fantom is new-generation BRS technology offering the novel Tyrocore polymer, thin struts, and visibility under x-ray angiography. This is an important advance for BRS, which have the potential to offer patients the benefits of a metallic stent without the complications of a life-long implant,” said Bernardo Cortese, MD, at the Fatebenefratelli Hospital in Milan, Italy, in a company press release.
