Concept & Components
COMBO is the world’s first and only dual therapy stent designed to repair vessel injury and regenerate the endothelium, fostering natural, true vessel healing. It does this by accelerating endothelial coverage and controlling neo-intimal proliferation. This is done through a combination of the proven EPC capturing technology and a sirolimus drug elution, delivered from a bioresorbable polymer that completely degrades within 90 days.
EPC Capturing Technology
Endothelial Progenitor Cells (EPCs) play a crucial role in vascular repair and endothelialization.
How does COMBO facilitate EPC capture and endothelialization?
|Bone marrow derived EPCs circulate in the blood stream||Anti-CD34 antibodies on the stent surface captures EPCs.||EPCs mature into endothelial cells, healing the artery with restored endothelium.|
