Text:

The aim of the joint project is to develop a bioresorbable occluder including a cardiac catheter adapted to it for implantation, which is gradually resorbed by the body after endothelialisation (bioresorption) - first the occluder scaffold and then the occluder sheath. Endothelialisation is to be accelerated by a coating of the occluder developed by the NMI.
