July 3, 2012 — Flexible Stenting Solutions Inc., a leading developer of next generation peripheral arterial, venous, neurovascular and biliary stents, announced that it has extended its CE mark authorized family of peripheral vascular stents to include the FlexStent iliac self expanding stent system.
The FlexStent iliac self expanding stent system is indicated for the treatment of symptomatic atherosclerotic disease of the common and/or external iliac arteries. With this product line extension, the FlexStent family of peripheral vascular stent systems now includes stent diameters of 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10 mm, and offers the physician additional options in the treatment of patients with peripheral artery disease (PAD) of the iliac, superficial femoral and popliteal arteries.
The addition of the FlexStent iliac self expanding stent system to the FSS CE mark authorized family of peripheral vascular stents enhances marketing opportunities for FSS products in the European medical device space. Market launch of the FlexStent iliac self expanding stent system in Europe is expected in Q3 2012.
As with the FlexStent femoropopliteal self expanding stent system, the FlexStent iliac self expanding stent system is an innovative, nearly fully connected, flexible, strong and durable nitinol stent delivered from a straightforward stent delivery system. In addition to simplicity and ease of use, the 6 French / .035" over the wire delivery system provides the physician with a means for very accurate stent deployment.
