|opis:||The object of the invention is a revolutionary in invasive cardiology, a comprehensively acting, endovascular stent for implantation at the site of the narrowed blood vessel in order to maintain its appropriate lumen size. Percutaneous coronary angioplasty is one of the most common major medical procedures performed around the world. Despite many successes in this field of medicine, restenosis or late and very late thrombosis still remain the biggest constraints and are associated with repeated interventions.
The aim of developing an innovative stent construction according to the invention was to increase the efficacy of the dilation of blood vessels, especially coronary arteries, by balloon angioplasty with stent implantation, and thus a significant reduction in postoperative complications.
Solutions present on the market do not operate in a comprehensive and targeted manner. Therefore, there is a great need to create an effective solution that will reduce the possibility of restenosis and accelerate the reendothelialization of the stent-implanted vessel and internal surface of the stent.
The main advantage of the new construction of the stent is its high resistance to external forces while maintaining adequate flexibility. The construction ensures a perfect fit of the stent to the wall of the vessel along its entire length and the optimal surface of the stent cells for the process of reendothelialization of the widened vessel. The use of the leaf-shaped elements of the stent increases the surface area of the internal functional coatings and provides an additional barrier separating the external stent coating from the inner wall surface of the blood vessel.
