STENTYS SES STENT
CONTINUOUS COMPLETE APPOSITION
Stent malapposition has been demonstrated as a contributor to clinical events1.
STENTYS' unique self-apposing technology overcomes the challenges that balloon expandable stents face in
- Gaining full apposition when stent sizing is unclear such a thrombus laden, tapering or ectatic vessels.
- Maintaining full apposition in situations such as STEMI when there are significant changes to the vessel after the initial procedure.
The combination of STENTYS' unique self-apposing technology and biostable polymer allows for a more rapid re-endothelisation and healing of the vessel
LOW LATE LUMEN LOSS
Complete apposition allows effective elution of the drug into the vessel wall minimising late lumen loss without inhibiting healing
