Ramon Raneses, Jr., MD was the first to implant a patient with the world's first FDA-approved dissolving heart stent at Genesys Regional Medical Center. He was shortly followed by Charlotte Ng, MD who implanted the second. The Absorb bioresorbable vascular scaffold is a major advance in the treatment of coronary artery disease, which affects 15 million people in the United States and remains a leading cause of death worldwide despite decades of therapeutic advances.
While stents are traditionally made of metal, Abbott's Absorb stent is made of a naturally dissolving material, similar to dissolving sutures. Absorb disappears completely in about 3 years, after it has done its job of keeping a clogged artery open and promoting healing of the treated artery segment. By contrast, metal stents are permanent implants.
