PTFE Film Covering Technology
The ultra-thin covering of the Advanta V12 uses a unique, proprietary 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.
