Reva Medical accelerates development of thin-strut bioresorbable plastic stents

Reva Medical (San Diego, CA) is fast-tracking development of its Fantom family of thin-strut bioresorbable scaffolds made from a proprietary desaminotyrosine polycarbonate polymer. Fantom scaffolds reportedly achieve a 50% reduction in thickness compared with the company’s ReZolve platform without a decrease in radial strength. They also result in manufacturing efficiencies. As a result, Reva will discontinue funding ReZolve-related projects, other than to follow patients in the Restore CE Mark trial, and focus entirely on the Fantom project.
