First Premounted, Balloon-Expandable Stent Cleared for Iliac Arteries

 

March 11, 2010

The Express LD Iliac Premounted Stent System is cleared for use in the iliac arteries. It is the first low-profile, premounted, balloon-expandable stent approved by the FDA for use in treating iliac artery disease.

The Express LD Iliac Stent is designed to be highly deliverable, and its Tandem Architecture Stent design is engineered to balance strength, flexibility and conformability.

The FDA cleared the stent in March 2010. The Express LD Iliac Stent has CE mark approval in Europe and is currently approved for iliac use in a number of international markets.
