Abstract: front page image
(EN)A stent may be formed of at least one structural material having a pattern including at least one serpentine structure which extends about the longitudinal axis of the stent. The structure is formed of a plurality of struts. Adjacent struts are interconnected by end portions having inner turns (18a, b) and outer turns (20a, b). At least some of the end portions are elongated and other end portions are non-elongated and have a predetermined length. The inner turns of the elongated end portions are substantially unaligned longitudinally with the inner turns of the non-elongated end portions. At least one of said elongated end portions is configured to serve as a fiducial marker (19) 1.
(FR)L'invention porte sur un stent constitué d'au moins un matériau structural dont la configuration présente au moins une structure en serpentin qui s'étend autour de l'axe longitudinal du stent. La structure est formée d'une pluralité de contrefiches. Des contrefiches adjacentes sont interconnectées par des parties terminales pourvues de courbures internes (18a, b) et de courbures externes (20a, b). Au moins certaines des parties terminales sont allongées et d'autres ne le sont pas, et ont une longueur prédéterminée. Les courbures internes des parties terminales allongées ne sont pratiquement pas alignées longitudinalement sur les courbures internes des parties terminales non allongées. Au moins une des parties terminales allongées est configurée pour servir de repère de centrage (19) 1.
