Cell Design Allows for Optimal Strength, Flexibility


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.
