Absorbable Magnesium Scaffold: “The Patches Need to Follow the Movement of the Cardiac Muscle“

Interview with Dr.-Ing. Thomas Hassel, Hannover (UWTH)

A magnesium implant will soon be available to help patients, who exhibit damage in the high-pressure area of the heart. The implant protects a tissue matrix where new cells that replace the affected tissue are meant to grow. The implant itself is supposed to completely dissolve after several months. COMPAMED.de spoke with D. Eng. Thomas Hassel about this exciting project.
