Stents, Vascular, Peripheral, Balloon-Expandable

Definition : Peripheral vascular stents designed to be expanded using a high-pressure balloon after delivery through an appropriate stent-delivery system, applying a constant radial pressure to the duct walls. These stents are usually metallic (e.g., stainless steel, platinum), and some are radiopaque or include radiopaque markers for accurate positioning into the peripheral arteries. Balloon-expandable peripheral stents are used to form a scaffold that holds the arteries open, preventing restenosis caused by vessel recoil and/or remodeling.

Entry Terms : "Balloon-Expandable Stents"

UMDC code : 20429
