† Applies to 3.0, 3.5, 4.0 mm stents.
‡ Triple helix fusion pattern used for all 4.0 mm and 3.5 mm x 9 mm stents.

Cobalt Alloy

  • Stronger than stainless steel – for thinner struts and lower profile*
  • Denser than stainless steel – for thinner struts without compromising radiopacity*
  • Proven implant material – more fatigue and corrosion-resistant than stainless steel*
  • Non-ferromagnetic – more MRI-compatible than stainless steel*
