Why Magnesium?

Magnesium alloy: favourable mechanical properties of a robust Magnesium backbone

Robust Magnesium backbone

The mechanical strength of Magnesium is superior to polymers like PLLA.1

Stable recoil

Magmaris® RMS has a 38% lower recoil after 1 hour.2

Strong radial resistance

No significant diameter change under increasing physiological pressure.1

Rounded edges and smooth surface

The electropolished rounded edges and smooth surface of the Magmaris scaffold generate less resistance during delivery of the scaffold to the lesion.
