Made from corn-based plastics, the Abbott 'Bioresorbable Vascular Scaffold' heart stent is made to keep arteries open that are prone to close.

Because of its medium, this scientific creation will disintegrate into the body after the artery has gained enough support to stay open on its own. Within two years' time, the Abbott 'Bioresorbable Vascular Scaffold' will have successfully provided the artery with sufficient reinforcement, allowing the artery to function normally once again as it degenerates into the bloodstream.
