Title:
A new novolimus-eluting bioresorbable coronary scaffold: Present status and future clinical perspectives. 
Abstract:
The DESolve® scaffold (Elixir Medical Corporation, Sunnyvale, California, USA) is manufactured from a poly-l-lactide based polymer and elutes an anti-proliferative, anti-inflammatory drug, Novolimus from a poly-l-lactide based topcoat mixture.
