Product EV3 EverFiex" Self-expanding Peripheral Stent System, Sterilized using Ethylene Oxide, Rx Only, PRB35-08-040-080.
The Protege EverFiex" Self-expanding Peripheral Stent System is a self-expanding Nitinol stent system intended for permanent implantation. The self-expanding stent is made of a nickel titanium alloy (Nitinol) and comes pre-mounted on a 6 F, 0.035" over-the-wire delivery system. The stent is cut from a Nitinol tube in an open lattice design, and has tantalum radiopaque markers at the proximal and distal ends of the stent. Upon deployment, the stent achieves its predetermined diameter and exerts a constant, gentle outward force to establish patency
