Title: NEUROVASCULAR STENT
Abstract:
An intravascular stent wherein at least a portion of the stent is formed of a refractory alloy. At least 95 wt.% of the refractory alloy is formed of two refractory metals. The refractory alloy is a non-shape memory alloy and a non-self-expanding alloy. The stent has a wall thickness, strut thickness and strut configuration to enable it to be expanded from an unexpanded configuration to a fully expanded configuration by expansion pressure of less than about 6 atm. by an inflatable device inflating against an inside surface of said metal tube body. The stent has sufficient radial strength in the fully expanded position to resist deformation when exposed to an external radial pressure of over 1 atm.
