Patrick K. Bowen, Jaroslaw Drelich and Jeremy Goldman Zinc Exhibits Ideal Physiological Corrosion Behavior for Bioabsorbable Stents Advanced Materials 25
Zinc is proposed as an exciting new biomaterial for use in bioabsorbable cardiac stents. Not only is zinc a physiologically relevant metal with behavior that promotes healthy vessels, but it combines the best behaviors of both current bioabsorbable stent materials: iron and magnesium. Shown here is a composite image of zinc degradation in a murine (rat) artery.
