A team of researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Technology and Advanced Materials IFAM in Dresden is developing resorbable pacing leads that can significantly reduce risk factors after cardiac surgery. In collaboration with the Faculty of Medicine Carl Gustav Carus – TU Dresden, the institute’s researchers are adopting this novel approach in the project “Resorbable Molybdenum Temporary Cardiac Electrodes,” or “ReMoTe CarE” for short. The joint Fraunhofer booth (Hall 8a, Booth G10) at this year’s COMPAMED trade show in Düsseldorf will showcase the very first demonstrators.
