February 2, 2010

The ACCULINK carotid stent is designed to provide easy and accurate stent placement in patients who have carotid atherosclerosis and who are at high risk for conventional surgery. The ACCULINK uses rapid exchange technology, enabling a single operator to easily control the embolic protection device and stent delivery system during catheter manipulations. The stent features an open-cell design.

The stent was launched in the United States in August 2004.
