Peripheral & Biliary Self-Expanding Stent Systems

Xpert Self-Expanding Stent System

Indications & Important Safety Information ››



xpertThe One and Only

The world's first 4F compatible self-expanding stent system, specifically designed for small vessels with focus on hemodynamics.

Innovation and technology have resulted in a new generation of the Xpert small vessel stent system, now enabling to treat peripheral vessels from diameter 2 mm up to 7 mm.

Each stent diameter was specifically developed to guarantee a Nitinol/vessel wall coverage of maximum 20%.

Designed for small vessels
The Xpert has a homogeneous and diameter independent constant arterial surface coverage (each stent diameter is specifically designed). The wall coverage is reduced compared to other NiTi stents.
Optimized hemodynamics
The relative wall coverage can be compared to a standard stent in a larger vessel. The low strut profile also contributes to optimizing the vessel lumen and minimizing the flow disturbance. This design assures minimal reduction of vessel lumen when placed in a small vessel.

lumen 2

Radial Force
Higher radial force compared to other 0.018” guidewire systems. No compromise in radial force compared to 0.035” guidewire systems.
In tortuous anatomy, a good wall apposition ensures, that vessel lumen is not reduced and hemodynamics is maintained.
