Many materials proposed as bioresorbable. However, in the clinical cardiology practice, they are not often used. This study evaluates the mechanical and corrosion properties of magnesium-based bioresorbable materials and identifies barriers to their implementation in clinical practice. The Embase, Scopus, Springer Link, and Science Direct databases searched up to April 4th, 2018. The magnesium-based materials were classified according to the compound materials used for enrichment. We have summarized the mechanical and corrosion properties separately. Of the 4194 potentially relevant publications, 101 reported systematic reviews. Of these studies, we included 37 in our review of reviews. In 51% of reviews, the authors reported mechanical properties and in 40% corrosion properties.
