Self-Expanding Stent Sizes for SFA Launched in Europe

 

January 27, 2010

January 27, 2010 – New 6, 7 and 8 mm diameters of the Maris Plus self-expanding peripheral stent system, were launched today in Europe for interventions involving the superficial femoral arteries (SFA).

The 9, 10 and 12mm diameters of the stent are already marketed for the iliac artery.

The Maris Plus stent features an exclusive cell design at the stent ends. This allows physicians to place several stents in series without stiffening the artery in the overlap region. The Maris Plus becomes the sixth stent platform now marketed by Invatec for the treatment of peripheral arterial disease (PAD), greatly optimizing visibility, flexibility and ease of use for the physician.
