Mizzou multi-disciplinary team receives $1.5 million grant to develop better cardiovascular stents

Public/private partnership to develop new device could revolutionize cardiovascular disease treatment

Dec. 14, 2017

It is common for blockages to develop in arteries that carry blood to the heart, which can lead to heart attack and other serious heart diseases. Stents are small, expandable metal mesh tubes that are inserted in blocked heart arteries during a heart catheterization procedure to improve blood flow to the heart muscle. Approximately 600,000 stent procedures are performed each year in the U.S. at a cost exceeding $12 billion. Recently, a multi-disciplinary team of engineers, biomedical scientists and cardiologists at the University of Missouri received a $1.5 million National Institutes of Health grant to further develop a revolutionary stent that could change the cardiovascular landscape. This, combined with previous funding from the NIH, brings the total granted for the project to $4.6 million to implement the device.  Full Story
