Description The stent is characterized by flexible 'S' crowns and longitudinal 'V' crowns that cross each other in a unique junction which undergoes rotation during expansion. This unique expansion mechanism distributes stress and minimizes foreshortening and recoil. The stent has two radiopaque gold markers for visibility of the stent ends, allowing for precise positioning.
