A self-expandable stent made of nitinol, the Zilver stent incorporates a Z-stent design with opposing Z-shape configurations segmented out across a flexible fine mesh slotted tube. Supplied with four gold markers distally and proximally for precise placement, Zilver is preloaded in a Flexor introducer — a unique material designed to provide optimal flexibility and maximum resistance to kinking or compressing.

A comparison of stent strut thickness between the Orsiro stent, pictured, and the market-leading stents on the U.S. and European markets. Vendors have been working toward reducing strut thickness to help improve overall clinical outcomes. Orsiro is now the smallest strut stent available on the market.
