Review on Zn Bioalloys

Vascular Stent

During the last few years, Zn alloys have been explored by the biomedical community as potential materials for bioabsorbable vascular stents due to their tolerable corrosion rates and tunable mechanical properties. In the new review coming from our research team and entitled “Zinc Alloys for Degradable Vascular Stent Applications” published in Acta Biomaterialia, the authors summarize recent progress made in developing Zn alloys for vascular stenting application. Novel Zn alloys are reviewed regarding their microstructural characteristics, mechanical properties, corrosion behavior and in vivo performance.
