Abstract: The need to develop a local antirestenotic mechanism to prevent in-stent thrombosis has driven the development of new generation stents. The Resolute Integrity® stent is a zotarolimus-eluting system with a new BioLinx™ polymer that allows a slower drug elution. Recently available data has shown the clinical efficacy and safety of this stent in randomized and observational studies. The Resolute Integrity stent system has demonstrated noninferiority when compared with other stents and holds the promise to treat more complex coronary lesions.
