The Only Fully Dissolving Stent 

Introducing Absorb, the only heart stent that fully dissolves.
It is made of the same material used in disappearing medical stitches. And it
restores blood flow to your artery—then goes away naturally—leaving
nothing permanent behind.*

Absorb is used in more than 100 countries and has treated more than
150,0001 patients. The first person who received Absorb was treated in New Zealand more than 10 years ago. It is now FDA approved and available in the U.S.
