Jotec has launched its new E-ventus BX balloon expandable peripheral stent graft system, indicated for interventional therapy of renal and iliac arteries in cases of ruptures, dissections and aneurysms. The E-ventus BX’s cobalt-chromium stent structure and ePTFE layer have been reinforced and both stent ends are fully ePTFE encapsulated, while Jotec says that the device maintains all the valued characteristics of the previous E-ventus systems.
The E-ventus BX offers maximum stent graft flexibility enabling it to conform to the curvature of the native vessel. The stent graft consists of a microporous, single-layer ePTFE and a unique cobalt-chromium stent design to achieve high radial strength and magnetic resonance imaging compatibility. The stent graft can be deployed to a specified diameter with minimal recoil and foreshortening and is securely anchored within the target vessel. The flexible delivery system facilitates advancement into the vessel for safe and convenient deployment with a low profile of 6F for 5–6mm stent grafts and 7F for 7–10mm stent grafts. The stent graft is available in lengths from 18–58mm in several steps. The E-ventus BX is now commercially available across Europe with immediate effect.
