What is the COMBO Dual Therapy Stent?
The COMBO Dual Therapy Stent (DTS) offers a unique approach to natural vessel healing. The EPC Capturing Technology is featured on the DTS, which is designed to repair vessel injury and regenerate endothelium1. The COMBO DTS consists of the following four components:
- Endothelial Progenitor Cell (EPC) Capture Technology
The holistic combination therapy ensures that the four parts work together to deliver improved blood flow and true healing.
Here’s how it works:
- An effective dose of the medication sirolimus is released on the outside of the stent into the tissue to prevent the thickening of arterial walls after a stent implant.
- On the side of the stent facing blood flow the unique EPC capture technology encourages the growth of healthy tissue and thus speeds up the coverage of the stent structure.
The result is that the Dual Therapy Stent delivers long-term healing solutions by naturally restoring the vessel.
