The functionality of cardiovascular stents, as well as other medical devices used for vascular and general surgical procedures, can be optimized through the proper material selection, fabrication and use of bioresorbable tubes that are precisely tailored to match specific application requirements. However, the development of high-quality standard or customized tubes can be highly complex, with extensive technical knowhow required across polymers selection, extrusion processes, sterilization process and analytical testing. In this webinar, Evonik experts shared some of their knowledge regarding how to select the right materials, match specific structural and application requirements, and then streamline the path to complete feasibility studies and commercial scale-up. Topics include:
- Tubes for cardiovascular stents
- Tubes and filaments for general surgical procedures including nasal, GIT and neurovascular
- Customized extrusion services
Recent advances in biomaterials are helping to enhance the safety, biocompatibility and performance of implantable medical devices across a range of application areas, and also accelerate speed to market. As a global leader for bioresorbable polymers, surface modification technologies and application services, we hosted a special webinar series featuring some key opinion leaders.
Entitled “Biomaterial solutions for implantable medical device applications”
, the series covered a range of topics that are of growing interest to medical device companies across application areas including orthopedics, wound healing and cardiovascular care. Each live webinar was short, focused and gave participants an opportunity to ask questions directly to our experts.
Webinars which were part of the series are:
