Effective, Proven Pro-Healing Stent Technology, Now on a Thin Cobalt Chromium Stent for:
Ideal Deliverability • Reduced Restenosis
The Genous Bio-engineered Cobalt Chromium Stent combines thin stent struts, dual helix design and EPC
capture technology to protect against thrombus and minimize restenosis by accelerating the natural healing process.
Plan for the best – Insure against the worst
The Genous Bio-engineered Cobalt Chromium Stent has a unique dual helix design that provides natural conformability and tremendous radial strength without compromising its extreme flexibility.
Squared Ends– for lesion coverage and minimal foreshortening
Dual Helix Backbone– for flexibility, radial strength and natural conformability
Sinusoidal Rings– for scaffolding, coverage, and support
The Genous CoCr stent is made from the L605 cobalt chromium alloy, which has no molybdenum and less nickel than 316L stainless steel and MP35N cobalt chromium alloy. Some patients are allergic to both nickel and molybdenum and can develop restenosis as a result.(Koster, R, et al., The Lancet, 2000, 356:1895-7. Nickel and Molybdenum Contact Allergies in Patients With Coronary In-stent Restenosis)
Up to 4.5 mm side branch access for effective bifurcation stenting and for maintaining patency of side branches.
Thinner is Better
Thinner stent struts are better, as long as radial force is not compromised. Thinner metal results in a lower profile, greater flexibility, and reduced restenosis.( Pache, J, et al., Journal of the American College of Cardiology, April, 2003, 16;41(8):1289-92. Intracoronary stenting and angiographic results: strut thickness effect on restenosis outcome (ISAR-STEREO-2) trial ).
