Pulsar®-18 T3 Self-Expanding Stent System
The Pulsar-18 T3 self-expanding stent system is a unique combination of 3 technologies that is indicated for use in patients with atherosclerotic disease of the superficial femoral, proximal popliteal and infrapopliteal arteries and for the treatment of insufficient results after percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA), e.g. residual stenosis and dissection.*
*Indication as per IFU. ** not available for sale in the US.
Why to use it
• Thin Struts, Low COF: 140 μm thin struts – thinner than leading brands1 – for lower chronic outward force (COF).2 Thinner struts and lower COF lead to a lower risk of restenosis,3 reduced vessel injury and inflammation,3 and faster endothelialization.4,5
• Tri-axial System With Braided Retractable Shaft: Outer stabilizing shaft isolates the retractable shaft from friction caused by the introducer valve to ensure accurate stent deployment.
• 4F Low-Profile Delivery System: Potential for safer, faster and simpler procedures than 6F. Compared to 6F, 4F interventions have clinically proven lower access site complication rates,6 shorter compression time,6 45% smaller puncture site,7 no need for a closure device,7 and potential for ambulatory treatment.
• Wheel operated handle: Easy-to-use, ergonomically designed.
