Research and development of the technology of medical stents manufacturing by means of laser milling

We established that at laser stent manufacturing by means of direct laser milling technology there is a possibility to create “pockets” in the stent’s walls with given depth, shape and size. These pockets are used for drug deposition and could not be formed using ordinary laser cutting techniques. Moreover, it is also possible to wary the stent’s filament thickness (up to 20 mkm) thus increasing the flexibility and elasticity when filament’s width increases (from 0.5 to 1 mm).
