Vascular Stenting: Its Function and its Future

The field of biomedical science and technology has been actively working on improving vascular stents to solve problems relating to the body’s reaction to their presence. Advances in nanotechnology are leading to improved vascular stent coating materials, in some cases making the implantable medical device seem invisible to the body. This is helping vascular surgeons […]

Hyperbranched Polyglycerol Coated Vascular Stents

A non-pharmacological approach to reducing device-triggered thrombosis and restenosis Synthetic materials are commonly rejected from the body’s natural defence mechanism. However, there is untapped potential to develop synthetic materials with the innate ability to avoid the body’s natural defence mechanisms from activating. While current materials used in devices has an acceptable level of biocompatibility, there […]

The potential of medical coatings

Our bodies are fascinating machines; the way they can repair themselves after injury, or become immune after infection. However even the most advanced machines have flaws. Due to our bodies’ impressive ability to protect against diseases and foreign objects, the rise in biomaterial, and in particular implanted medical devices, surgeons and patients continue to risk […]
