Of these devices, 19 are in active development, while the remaining 36 are in an inactive stage of development. There are five products in the early stages of development, and the remaining 14 are in the late stages of development.

Coronary bioabsorbable stents are also known as bioresorbable or biodegradable coronary stents. They are made from the material found in dissolvable sutures known as polylactic acid. The advantage of this stent is that it does not leave any metal body behind and hence, the possibility of late-stent thrombosis and restenosis decreases. Bioabsorbable stents help in better drug delivery compared to metallic stents. One unit refers to one bioabsorbable stent system.

Innovations in the medical devices sector are linked to the development of new approaches, processes, or technologies for treating, diagnosing, and managing disease in response to demand from healthcare for better patient outcomes and reduce healthcare costs.

Based on an analysis of GlobalData’s Medical Intelligence Center pipeline product database, these actively developed Coronary Bioabsorbable Stents pipeline devices are all expected to be approved within the next ten years.

Currently, private organizations, public entities and institutions are working on the development of Coronary Bioabsorbable Stents devices. Overall, most of these Coronary Bioabsorbable Stents pipeline devices are being developed by private entities.

Key players involved in the active development of Coronary Bioabsorbable Stents include Amaranth Medical, MIV Therapeutics, Xenogenics, MicroPort Scientific, OrbusNeich, Shanghai Bio-heart Biological Technology, Biotronik, Biotronik SE, Biotyx Medical (Shenzhen) and Boston Scientific.
