The BioFreedom™ Stent is a polymer-free BA9™ drug-coated stent, which has been proven to be safer and more effective than a Bare Metal Stent in High Bleeding Risk patients.
As a drug coated stent, BioFreedom™ is designed to combine the benefits of a drug eluting stent and a bare metal stent:
- The Selectively Microstructured Surface (SMS) enables the delivery of the drug without polymer or carrier
- The highly lipophilic Biolimus A9 (BA9™) drug allows a rapid transfer of the drug form the SMS to the arterial wall and a sustained tissue release of the BA9™.
In the landmark LEADERS FREE trial, BioFreedom™ demonstrated significantly safer and more effective outcomes than a Bare Metal Stent in High Bleeding Risk patients treated with a 1-month only DAPT course.
