The advanced alloy of the Driver MX2 and Driver OTW has greater strength and more radiopacity than stainless steel. A unique fusion pattern and ultra-thin struts combine to produce a low-profile system for increased trackability and flexibility. Smooth, edgeless, modular design of 10 crowns and short 1.0 mm elements increases deliverability. Proprietary Discrete Technology minimizes balloon overhang. Available on over-the-wire or the short-wire, low-profile MX2 delivery system with optional wire exchange capability.
Excellent Lesion Support, Coverage
The Boston Scientific Synergy stent uses a unique abluminal, bioresorbable drug-carrier polymer that dissolves after the vessel wall has healed months after the stent is implanted. Stent polymers have been implicated in cases of late-stent thrombosis, which required patients with DES to stay on dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT). This study looked at using the device as a way to shorten DAPT duration.
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.
