Polymer-free biolimus-eluting stents (PF-BES) have been shown superior to bare metal stents in high bleeding risk (HBR) patients treated with 1-month dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT). However, limited evidence is available on PF-BES in non-HBR patients. We aim to evaluate the safety and efficacy of PF-BES in all-comer patients undergoing percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI).
