System for the Treatment of Narrowed Blood Vessels
The Stent System consists of a frame-like prosthesis, which widens and supports a blocked blood vessel, and an applicator, with which the prosthesis is deployed into the vessel using a catheter. The elegant, curved shape of the applicator facilitates its use with only one hand. The system is compatible with various stent sizes. The stents are made of nitinol, a nickel and titanium alloy, which is particularly flexible and resistant to breakage.
Statement by the jury
