Abbott Labs' Dissolving Heart Stent Helps Improve Recovery


Innovator: John Capek
Age: 51
Title: Executive vice president, medical devices, Abbott Laboratories (ABT)
 
Form and function: A stent the size of a ballpoint pen’s spring, delicate enough to hold a cardiac artery open after surgery. It dissolves in the body, enabling more natural recovery without the threat of long-term damage from a standard metal stent.

Cortez is a reporter for Bloomberg News in Minneapolis.
