Non-Woven Stent Coating Technology – No Future for the Suture?
Over the last 12 months at The Electrospinning Company, huge developments have been made in our sutureless stent coating technology platform. Cardiovascular stents covered with textiles and films have known advantages over uncovered ones, primarily that the coating provides a direct barrier to tissue ingrowth to prevent restenosis. Current manufacturing processes use sutures to stitch a textile… Read more »
Non-Woven Solutions in Dental Surgery
We visited the International Dental Show (IDS) show, Cologne in March 2023 to explore the use of electrospun membranes for bone tissue guide repair dental membranes. This is what we learnt: Studies have shown that decellularized collagen outperforms synthetic fibrous non-woven membranes, and synthetics are only used if patients request for them, for example to… Read more »
Our approach in covering technology
We deposit fibrous membranes directly onto metal and non-metal devices, using expertise that we have gained over a decade of producing innovative non-woven medical textiles. We select from a wide range of GMP-grade degradable or non-degradable polymers to tailor a medical textile covering to a customer’s device. Both external and internal surfaces can be coated… Read more »
