Cordis Corporation has launched the Presillion Cobalt Chromium (CoCr) Coronary Stent in Europe, which delivers the stent through the arteries, and conformability and scaffolding that adapts to the vessel when deployed.
The Presillion Stent consists of alternating rings of narrow and wide struts that are optimized to give excellent flexibility with the narrow struts while maintaining optimal radial strength with the wide struts. The unique stent design includes an adaptive closed cell architecture that is capable of differential lengthening. This enables the stent to be flexible in the unexpanded configuration, and support the vessel while conforming to its curvature in the expanded configuration.
The Presillion Stent is available in lengths that range from 8-33 mm and in a variety of diameter sizes from 2.5-4.0 mm. Cordis Corporation is the exclusive global distributor of the Presillion stent, which is designed and manufactured by Medinol Ltd, Israel. Presillion is a trademark of Cordis Corporation. The product received CE mark in March 2008.
