Loyola becomes one of the first centers in Illinois to offer dissolving cardiac stents

Loyola is the first center in Chicago to offer heart patients Absorb®, a new stent that is absorbed by the body after serving its purpose. The Absorb stent remains intact until the artery has healed and no longer is in danger of collapsing. Thereafter, the stent gradually breaks down into carbon dioxide and water.
