In vitro testing of cardiovascular implants for better quality

Nowadays, heart diseases can be treated well. Depending on the clinical picture, various medical aids are available: for example, cardiovascular stents or artificial heart valves. However, there is still need for improvement regarding the tolerability and longevity of heart implants.

Dr. Natalia Beshchasna (Group Manager: Biodegradation and Nanofunctionalization at Fraunhofer IKTS) will explain how the quality of cardiovascular implants can be tested. In this context, research at IKTS focuses on the biostability and biodegradation of stents and the calcification of heart valve bioprothesis. These phenomena cannot be investigated using standard methods, so application-oriented approaches had to be developed for each problem. The result is in vitro tests that consider the respective operating conditions, manufacturing technologies and implant materials – and that are demonstrated to you theoretically in the lecture and practically in a lab tour.

Combination of search terms

You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.

Brackets

You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).

Phrases

Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.

Selection criteria

You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).

If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
