Why Shape Memory Polymers (SMP) Foams Therapy
SMP’s are polymers that remember their shape.
Can be compressed drastically and still retain original shape when acted upon by stimulus.
Blood clots throughout the porous foam and forms a layer of endothelial cells across the aneurysm for faster healing.
Lower and more uniform stresses on wall, lowers hemorrhage risk.
Model of aneurysm that has a dye added to view the laser as the SMP foam is being deployed.
A. cellulose and starch B. polyethylene and nylon C. protein and starch D. protein and polyacrylate
B. shape memory polymer
