NiTiDES is a polymer-free, nitinol sirolimus-eluting stent for the treatment of lesions in the superficial femoral arteries and in the proximal segment of the popliteal artery. The proprietary polymer-free, abluminal reservoir technology enables long-term drug elution only towards the vascular wall for up to 3 months, eliminating negative factors associated with using polymer-coated stents.
Efficacy and safety
This is a polymer-free Amphilimus™ (sirolimus + fatty acid) eluting stent. The polymer-free technology minimizes the risk of inflammation/thrombosis, and its proprietary formula increases drug absorption. Safety demonstrated in clinical trials (Illumina).
An effective solution also for patients with diabetes mellitus.
The Amphilimus™ formulation (sirolimus + fatty acid) increases drug bioavailability and absorption, maximizing overall safety and efficacy of the product.
Comfort of use and precise implantation
The stent is available in different sizes and trackable thanks to the application of six radiopaque tantalum markers on the stent edges, three on each end. Less metal in a vessel improves healing. The stent displays outstanding trackability. It can be safely post-dilatated using a balloon technique, which improves comfort.
