Large prospective studies on the use of bioresorbable vascular scaffolds (BVS) for diffuse coronary artery disease are lacking. IT DISAPPEARS is a large multicentre prospective registry investigating the short and long-term outcomes of everolimus-eluting BVS in patients with long coronary lesions and/or multivessel coronary artery disease. In this paper, the Authors report the 2-year outcomes of the registry.

The report show that BVS may yield acceptable clinical outcomes in patients with complex coronary lesions when the implantation technique is appropriate.
