Stent Delivery System – Cobalt-Chromium
The Stent Delivery System is a multicellular Cobalt-Chromium stent that offers strength, stability, and flexibility for treating the most difficult lesions. The Co-Cr Stent is indicated for patients with coronary heart disease. It is inserted in coronary vessels with a diameter of 2.0 to 4.0 mm. It is used for the treatment of de-novo and restenotic lesions in coronary arteries and vein-bypass-grafts.
> Co-Cr stent provides strength and stability, while maintaining a high level of flexibility and vessel conformity
> Minimal strut thickness (65 μm) for optimal performance and small vessel stenting
> Excellent outward radial force in a low profile stent
> Co-Cr technology approximately 70-80% stronger than stainless steel
> Radiopacity in an ultra thin stent provides excellent visibility
> Open cell stent design and ultra thin struts provide excellent strength while maintaining flexibility
> Highly flexible delivery catheter to facilitate navigation of tortuous anatomy
> Good pushability for crossing difficult lesions
> Low profile to access difficult lesions
