PURPOSE To evaluate geometric-mechanical characteristics of self-expanding peripheral nitinol stents, such as alignment to the vessel wall, flexibility and radial force, in order to obtain information as to which stent is most appropriate depending on the characteristics of the arterial lesion. MATERIALS AND METHODS The in vitro tests were done on seven stent systems: Acculink, Zilverstent, Philon, Precise, Luminexx, SelfX and Sinus Super-Flex. All stents had a diameter of 8 mm and a length… CONTINUE READING
