Finnish researchers have found that the low-expression variant of fatty acid-binding protein 4 (FABP4), which is particularly common among Finns, reduces the risk of heart attack and stroke. The finding revealed a new way to customise a potentially preventive drug for atherosclerosis.A novel pathway for prevention of heart attack and stroke - Read more

Absorbable magnesium scaffold: “The patches need to follow the movement of the cardiac muscle“

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[08/08/2014] A magnesium implant will soon be available to help patients, who exhibit damage in the high-pressure area of the heart. The implant protects a tissue matrix where new cells that replace the affected tissue are meant to grow. The implant itself is supposed to completely dissolve after several months. MEDICA.de spoke with D. Eng. Thomas Hassel about this exciting project. Absorbable magnesium scaffold: “The patches need to follow the movement of the cardiac muscle“ - Read more
