Advanta V12 balloon expandable covered stent

For more than 15 years, by touching over 500,000 lives, our Advanta V12 balloon expandable covered stent has been trusted by physicians for its ease of use and proven, reliable outcomes.

Designed with a unique PTFE covering technology, Advanta V12 inspires confidence with high patency and low reintervention rates.[1] Backed by robust, long-term clinical data and over 500 publications, the Advanta V12 stent continues to prove itself every day.


The Advanta V12 Covered Stent is indicated for restoring and improving the patency of the iliac and renal arteries. Renal approval includes 5mm, 6mm and 7mm diameter Advanta V12 sizes. In Canada, the Advanta V12 Covered stent indication excludes renal arteries.


The Advanta V12 Stent is not available in the U.S.

COBEST – Randomized Multicenter Study - Advanta V12 vs. Bare Metal Stents

  • Two-fold lower incidence of re-intervention (p=.02)
  • Significantly higher patency rates at 5 years (74.7% vs. 62.9%; p=.01)[1]
  • Significantly higher patency in subgroup analysis of TASC C/D lesions (p=.003) [1]
