Conformation of adjacent self-expanding stents: a cross-sectional in vitro study

Hughes, Marion ; Forauer, Andrew R ; Lindh, Mats LU and Cwikiel, Wojciech (2006) In Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology 29(2). p.255-259
Abstract
We examined the proximal conformation of three commonly used self-expanding stents when the stents were deployed adjacent to one another in a tubular model, simulating a "kissing" stent technique. The stent pairs were evaluated by computed tomogrphy to determine the cross-sectional area excluded by the stents within the model. The mean areas associated with each stent pair were compared and significance evaluated by a t-test. A statistically significant difference was found when the area excluded by adjacent Wallstents was compared with both the Luminexx and SMART stents (p < 0.001 and p < 0.002, respectively). The difference in the area excluded and differences in conformation might play a role in the lower patencies that have been... (More)
