Title (EN) RADIOPAQUE STENT COMPOSED OF A BINARY ALLOY
(FR) STENT RADIO-OPAQUE EN ALLIAGE BINAIRE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A tubular stent formed from a binary alloy whose primary constituent elements are either tantalum-tungsten or tantalum-niobium. The stent providing optimum radiopacity for real time visualization of the stent during a stent placement procedure, where fluoroscopy is used as the visualization method. The binary alloy may be embodied in a multitude of stent patterns.
(FR)L'invention concerne un stent tubulaire fabriqué à partir d'un alliage binaire dont les constituants primaires sont soit du tantale-tungstène soit du tantale-niobium. Ce stent fournit une radio-opacité optimale pour une visualisation en temps réel de celui-ci pendant son opération de placement, au cours de laquelle la fluoroscopie est utilisée en tant que procédé de visualisation. L'alliage binaire peut être incorporé dans une multitude de modèles de stent.
