Design and Materials
The Azule CoCr stent has a unique dual helix design that provides natural conformability and tremendous radial strength without compromising its extreme flexibility.
– for lesion coverage and minimal foreshortening
Dual Helix Backbone
– for flexibility, radial strength and natural conformability
Helically Linked Sinusoidal Rings
– for scaffolding, coverage, and support
Effective Bifurcation Stenting when Side Branch Access Matters
The Azule CoCr stent cells can be expanded to up to 4.5 mm in diameter, enabling excellent side branch access for effective bifurcation stenting and for maintaining patency of side branches.
When Material Matters
The Azule stent is made from the L605 cobalt chromium alloy, which has no molybdenum and less nickel than 316L stainless steel or MP35N cobalt chromium alloy. Some patients are allergic to both nickel and molybdenum and can develop restenosis as a result.1
