A bioresorbable stent based on a continuous multiple fiber coil array was designed, with sufficient strength and compliance to permit maneuvering and expansion with a conventional balloon angioplasty catheter. Thus, the design and fabrication principles were sufficiently versatile that a broad range of applications can be addressed. The results demonstrate that the feasibility of expandable biodegradable endovascular stent design and deployment by conventional means, without heating.
