Vascular Intervention // Coronary
Resorbable Magnesium Scaffold (RMS)




     Compelling safety data

     Fast Magnesium resorption time

     Better deliverability





Why Magnesium?





Magnesium alloy: Favorable mechanical properties of a robust Magnesium backbone

Robust Magnesium backbone



The mechanical strength of Magnesium is superior to polymers like PLLA.1

Stable recoil

Magmaris has a 38% lower recoil after 1 hour.2

*Absorb, Abbott

Strong radial resistance

No significant diameter change under increasing physiological pressure.3

Rounded edges and smooth surface



The electropolished rounded edges and smooth surface of the Magmaris scaffold generate less resistance during delivery of the scaffold to the lesion.

Compelling safety data





Confidence through evidence

*Target Lesion Failure. Composite of cardiac and unknown death, target vessel myocardial infarction, clinically driven target lesion revascularization and CABG.
** Patient underwent MIDCAB with subsequent DAPT interruption 5 days after the procedure.

Fast resorption time





~95% of Magnesium resorbed at 12 months7

A more deliverable scaffold





More than 70% of physicians who have used Magmaris RMS in clinical practice have rated the device to be better than a polymeric scaffold.9*

Better lesion crossing



Up to 40% lower lesion entry and crossing force.10

Better trackability in tortuous anatomy

42% less peak force.11

Better pushability

73% more force transmitted from hub to tip.12
