Materials and Manufacturing Technologies Available for Production of a Pediatric Bioabsorbable Stent

Abstract

Transcatheter treatment of children with congenital heart disease such as coarctation of the aorta and pulmonary artery stenosis currently involves the use of metal stents. While these provide good short term results, there are long term complications with their use. Children outgrow metal stents, obligating them to future transcatheter dilations and… (More)
