In our previous study, to find out the optimal alloy suitable for biliary surgery, magnesium alloy Jiao Da Bio-magnesium (denoted as JDBM) alloy, Zn-3Cu alloys, and their respective coating (MgF-PDLLA) products were produced for our research. We found that JDBM seems to be a potential material for clinical biliary stent application due to its uniform degradation and good compatibility. In order to apply the JDBM alloy to treat benign bile duct stricture, our group prepared the bare JDBM and its coating product into finished stents by mesh weaving carving technology and conducted the mechanical property tests, degradation tests and biocompatibility tests.
