Clinically Proven Even in Complex Lesions2

Strong results with no significant difference in outcomes between calcified and noncalcified lesions

24 - m FTLR 4EVER3

Positive results even for long and occluded lesions in a high risk population

12 - m FTLR TASC D4

All-comers registry shows sustained results in a real world population

24 - m FTLR BIOFLEX PEACE5 (stent only)

What is COF and why does it matter?

Chronic outward force (COF) is the force exerted on the vessel wall by a self-expanding stent to achieve its present diameter.6 Thinner struts, which have lower COF*, result in a lower risk of restenosis, reduced vessel injury and inflammation and faster endothelialization.7,8,9

Thinner struts for lower COF10

Achieve less mean restenosis with
low-COF Pulsar-18 T311

*as demonstrated in pre-clinical studies
