In recent years, there has been growing interest in magnesium alloys as a new generation of biodegradable stents for medical treatment especially in cardiovascular disease. In order to prevent the vessel ruptured, stent needed to hold and open up the vessels. Magnesium and its alloy has sufficient mechanical strength to act as a stent. However, fast degradation of magnesium due to corrosion in the human bioenvironment limits its effective use as stent. The stent is expected not to degrade within 6-12 months for the vessel to be healed. Current stents just can last for 3-6 months before it dissolved. Magnesium alloy plays an important role to prolong the degradation onset time.
