Everolimus-Eluting Platinum Chromium Coronary Stent System

The SYNERGY BP Stent is a new category of stent that works synergistically, emphasizing the suppression of neointimal growth at the arterial wall while promoting healing inside the vessel. It features the Synchrony™ Bioabsorbable Polymer Coating, which is applied only to the abluminal side of the stent to promote rapid endothelialization.2

Freedom from Long-Term Polymer Exposure

The polymer on the SYNERGY BP Stent is absorbed when it’s no longer needed, shortly after the drug is completely eluted at three months, providing early healing and freedom from long-term polymer exposure.1

It was designed to address the challenges associated with permanent polymer stents such as inflammation, neoatherosclerosis and late stent thrombosis.

Everolimus is still present in the tissue out to 120-days while polymer completes absorption

Thinner stent struts also impact healing. Stents with thinner strut designs have been proven to heal faster than thicker strut stents.2 The SYNERGY BP Stent has ultra-thin 74 µm* struts, which have shown more rapid healing compared to thicker stent strut designs in clinical cases and in preclinical research.3,4

*Strut thickness for small vessel model is 0.0029” (74μm), Workhorse model is 0.0031” (79μm) and large vessel is 0.0032” (81μm). Boston Scientific data on file.


Optimal Healing Shown Through Strut Coverage and Angioscopy

SYNERGY™ BP Stent has shown full stent strut coverage as early as 30-days in humans and showed 0% stent thrombosis in all of these OCT analyses.

But the proof is in the quality of healing. Through angioscopy, we are able to detect the quality of neointimal coverage not seen by OCT. The SYNERGY BP Stent shows differentiated and improved healing.
