The TAXUS Express2 is a stainless steel stent that uses Paclitaxel and Translute polymer to control the drug release. Clinical trials consistently show low TLR and MACE rates compared to the bare metal control arm among a variety of patients and lesions. It is available in over-the-wire and monorail systems in a full product matrix, from 2.50 to 3.5 mm diameters and 8 to 32 mm lengths.
