First-in man trial with DREAMS (Drug-Eluting Absorbable Magnesium Scaffold)


  • Excellent long-term outcomes at 3 years with a low Target Lesion Failure (TLF) rate and no cardiac death or scaffold thrombosis
  • No TLF events were observed after the first year

Study Design

Prospective, multi-center, First-In-Man trial testing DREAMS (Drug-Eluting Absorbable Magnesium Scaffold) in 46 patients with a total of 47 de novo lesions

Principal investigator: Prof. Michael Haude, Neuss, Germany

Image Study Design

Primary Endpoint:

Target Lesion Failure (TLF) defined as a composite of cardiac death, target-vessel myocardial infarction (TV-MI) and clinically driven Target Lesion Revascularization (cd-TLR) at 6 and 12 months


Secondary Endpoints:

- Late Lumen Loss (LLL) at 6 and 12 months
- Scaffold thrombosis at 1, 24 and 36 months
- Cumulative rates of TLF at 1, 24 and 36 months

Clinical Results


Representative optical coherence tomography after implantation of drug-eluting bioresorbable scaffolds (DREAMS) (A) at 6 months (B) and 12 months (C)

Immediately after implantation strut apposition to the vessel wall is good, with some struts covering the sidebranch. At 6 months remnants are mostly covered and former struts over the side branch are being resorbed. The change from a metallic stent-like appearance to remnants after magnesium resorption is shown.
