Delivery technique plays an important role in determining vessel wall apposition of the Enterprise self-expanding intracranial stent

BACKGROUND The Enterprise (EN) vascular reconstruction device is a self-expanding nitinol stent used as adjunctive support in wide-necked aneurysm coiling. We sought to evaluate the effect of deployment technique on how well the EN stent conforms to the vessel wall around a curve. METHODS A flow model consisting of a 3.5 mm diameter silicone tube forming… CONTINUE READING
