What is BioFreedom™?
BioFreedom™ is a polymer- and carrier-free Drug Coated Stent with BA9™ (DCS).
The combination of a selectively micro-structured abluminal surface (SMS) and Biolimus A9™ make BioFreedom™ a unique stent.
At least 40%1 of PCI patients are High Bleeding Risk (HBR) requiring an individualized approach, BioFreedom™ provides a more appropriate treatment strategy.
The rapid 28 day transfer of BA9™ to the coronary artery and rapid reendothelialization of the stented vessel, make BioFreedom™ the most relevant choice of stent for High Bleeding Risk (HBR) patients who cannot tolerate long dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT).
The LEADERS FREE trial proved superior safety and efficacy of the BioFreedom™ DCS vs a BMS in the previously understudied and underserved HBR patient population.2
BioFreedom™ is now listed as stent of choice in ESC DAPT guidelines, for 1-month ultra-short DAPT in patients with stable CAD in whom longer DAPT regimes poses safety concerns*.
