Advanta V12 Balloon Expandable Covered Stent
Advanta V12 leads the way
With over 500,000 global sales, Advanta V12 leads the pack in covered stent technology. Patrice Mwipatayi, vascular surgeon from Royal Perth Hospital, Australia, spoke to LINC Today following his presentation at LINC 2019.
The professor shared his extensive experience with the V12 as the principal investigator of the Covered Versus Balloon Expandable Stent Trial (COBEST).
PTFE Film Covering Technology
The ultra-thin covering of the Advanta V12 uses the latest developments in PTFE film covering technology. The 316L stainless steel struts are completely covered protecting both the flow lumen as well as the struts from contacting the luminal wall. The Advanta V12 is designed to expand uniformly and prevent tissue from prolapsing through the expanded stent.
A Truly Customized Fit
Together with its PTFE encapsulation and open cell design, the Advanta V12 is able to be post dilated to match each patient’s anatomy.
