Absorb, the only Fully Dissolving Heart Stent

Introducing Absorb, the only heart stent that full dissolves. It is made of the same material used in medical stitches. And it restores blood flow to your artery - then goes away naturally - leaving nothing permanent behind.

Absorb is used in more than 100 countries and has treated more than 150,000 patients. The first person who received Absorb was treated in New Zealand more than 10 years ago. It is now FDA approved and available in the U.S.

Iowa Methodist at UnityPoint Health - Des Moines is the second hospital in the State of Iowa and the only UnityPoint Health facility to have this new technology available for patient care and treatment of arterial stenosis of the coronary arteries.
