pmNew and improved metals are creating higher performing medical devices with better patient outcomes. Nitinol use in medical devices continues to rise, with new higher purity and more biocompatible versions emerging. Bioabsorbable magnesium alloys provide an effective alternative to drug eluting stents and the clinical issues associated with such devices. The design flexibility afforded by metal additive manufacturing opens a whole new realm of patient-specific devices and improved outcomes. These technologies and their impacts on medical devices will be discussed.
