Self-expanding nitinol stent system
iVolution is an open-cell, self-expanding nitinol stent (nickel-titanium alloy) designed to reach its maximum diameter once implanted in the artery.
It exercises a homogeneous and constant radial force on the artery wall in order to keep it open.
The stent is supplied on a triple-sheath coaxial catheter. The handle has a safety mechanism that must be withdrawn in order to release the stent. There is a dual release system: slow, through scrolling, or fast, making a pull-back.
The entire system ends in a smooth, atraumatic tip in order to avoid damage to the artery during the procedure.
