A horizontal stake support (22) is embodied to hold the upper ring (4) of at least one stake (2).
A composite stent structure includes separate and distinct stent elements or members: an outer stent element and an inner stent element removably attached to the outer stent element.
The hinge stent (5) is formed of a single stent section (20) or of multiple stent sections joined together.
Said positional stent (20) can be inserted all the way to an aortic valve position of a patient while being embodied separately from the heart valve stent (10).
An endoluminal device (170) comprises a stent and a tubular graft supported by the stent.
The strut (10) can bend in the radial direction but not in the uniformly curved surface of the stent (5).
A stent assembly (10) comprises an expandable stent (40) having a first stent backbone (45) which extends from the proximal end (42) of the stent to the distal end (44) of the stent.
The coating material is allowed to flow around the stent strut for full encapsulation, even when application of coating material occurs on only one surface of the stent.
The disclosure also relates to a technique for making a stent and for mounting a stent on a delivery catheter by which the stent may be crimped onto the catheter in its lowest profile configuration.
The running suture linking the first stent and the second stent adds strength to the stitches and better secures the first stent to the device.
The elongate body comprises a distal stent section, a proximal stent section and control wires for reducing the distance between the distal and proximal stent sections.
An implantable stent includes a stent retrieval member (30) for repositioning or retrieval of the stent after it has been implanted into a bodily lumen.
An endoprosthesis comprising a stent, a cover fully covering the stent wherein the cover has variable porosity in the radial direction; and an adhesion layer connecting the stent to the cover.
There is also a second stent (14).
Since the tissue can surround and envelope the stent, foreign obdy responses to the stent material are reduced and delayed.
The first stent backbone has a greater column strength than that of the plurality of interconnected stent members.
More particularly, this invention relates to a stent comprising a coating based on a hyaluronic acid polymer in which the said hyaluronic acid polymer is an ester derivative of the hyaluronic acid.
A radially expandable stent-graft endoprosthesis includes a knitted tubular structure circumferentially disposed and securably attached to the stent.
