The resorbable magnesium alloy for scaffolds
With RESOLOY® MeKo offers a bioresorbable magnesium-alloy with extraordinary properties. RESOLOY® is an attractive alternative to polymer scaffolds. In comparison to PLLA, it offers about 3 times higher strength, thinner struts, a higher radial force and is applicable for direct stenting. The degradation time of RESOLOY® is adjusted by coatings. It has a proven biocompatibility, no shelf life and no temperature issues.

MeKo performs in-vitro degradation tests for magnesium scaffolds:
Extensive in vitro and in vivo tests have been performed for a scientific study on the degradation of vascular scaffolds (bioresorbable stents) made from the RESOLOY® magnesium alloy.
The results confirm that the degradation time of RESOLOY® can be adjusted thanks to a double coating of fluoride and polymers. A significantly slower degradation is achieved in vitro compared to the Magmaris®.
An additional advantage is that RESOLOY® degrades with no residue. The animal tests confirm the in vitro results from the test laboratory and demonstrate that RESOLOY® is highly biocompatible. The results of the published study demonstrate the high degree of safety and efficacy of the alloy.
