BioResorbable Scaffolds

After the plain-old balloon angioplasty, the introduction of bare-metal and drug-eluting stents, does the advent of bio-resorbable scaffolds (BRS) represent a revolution in interventional cardiology?
The course aims to answer the following questions:
WHAT are we talking about? (BRS technology)
WHY should I use BRS? (Therapy principles and proven advantages)
WHERE should I use BRS? (In which patients and which lesions)
HOW should I use BRS? (Technique of implantation)
