Bio-Absorbing Stents to Mark a New Phase of Angioplasty

March 6, 2013
Cardiac patients in need of angioplasty can look at a new option for removal of blockages in their hearts - a bio-absorbable stent. It disappears completely in about 18 months after it is fixed in the blocked blood vessel. Presently, metallic stents that permanently stay in the blood vessel are the most sought-after treatment for cardiac diseases.
