NUST School of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering has successfully developed the Cardiac Stents for the first time in Pakistan.

With funds from Ministry of Science and Technology (MoST) to enable production of cardiac stents (both bare-metal and drug-eluted) and angioplasty balloon catheters, this is the first time that a medical school is producing devices to treat narrow or weak arteries in Pakistan.

Along with this, NUST-MDDC is seeking to establish a link between the industry and academia in order to develop the ignored medical devices industry.
