Next-Generation Coronary Stent Launched in Europe

March 30, 2010 – A new coronary stent recently launched in Europe is designed to gain easier access to distal lesions and help restore the artery's natural form.

Cordis Corp. launched the Presillion Plus next-generation bare metal stent system. An upgraded delivery system increases the speed of procedures with atraumatic delivery, increased pushability and smoother withdrawal.

The stent uses a new hypotube for improved pushability in crossing calcified lesions and a redesigned semicompliant balloon for precise stent deployment and decreased deflation time.

It is available in lengths from 8 to 33 mm including a new 28 mm addition, and in diameters from 2.5 to 4 mm.

The PIONIR study, designed to measure the safety and effectiveness of Presillion and Presillion Plus, completed enrollment at 16 sites in Europe and Israel. The study, conducted by Medinol, includes 278 patients and will evaluate clinical performance through one year.
