EverFlex Peripheral Self-expanding Stent System

The #1 EverFlex stent* offers precision, strength, and flexibility to treat peripheral arterial disease in the SFA and proximal popliteal arteries. Delivered by the physician-inspired Entrust delivery system, it offers a 5 F low profile, 0.035” guidewire compatibility, triaxial design, and 150 cm catheter lengths. Medtronic also offers a traditional 6 F pin-pull delivery system.

You asked for simple deployment with reduced variability — and the Entrust system delivered.

EverFlex Self-expanding Peripheral Stent

  1. Spiral cell connection pattern enhances flexibility.
  2. Three-wave peak design produces expansion force that resists compression and provides excellent wall apposition.
  3. Peak-to-peak connection nodes help to disperse force uniformly among four struts.
  4. Tantalum markers enhance visibility for easier, more precise positioning.
  5. Flexible design improves fracture resistance and restores vessel patency.

Entrust Delivery System

Ergonomic Handle

  1. Removable locking pin prevents deployment before use.
  2. Rotating thumbwheel provides auditory and tactile feedback during stent flowering. 
  3. Comfortable grip designed to aid control during deployment.

Low-profile Catheter

  1. Tip design eliminates catching of the stent when removing delivery system. 
  2. Low-profile (5 F) delivery system can mean smaller puncture site, less time applying pressure,1 quicker ambulatory rates,2 and reduced vascular access site complications.3,4 
  3. Long catheter (150 cm) option allows for extended reach from multiple access sites.
  4. 0.035” guidewire compatibility provides greater support for SFA procedures.

Triaxial Shaft

Retractable Outer Sheath

Outer sheath retracts inside the isolation sheath during deployment, uncovering the stent and allowing it to expand.

Inner Shaft

Inner shaft assembly provides a lumen for the guidewire and anchors the stent in place.

Study Details

The EverFlex stent with Entrust delivery system offers the simplicity and performance you’ve come to expect, and the evidence is in the outcomes: sustained patency and durability even in long, complex lesions.5

The Durability II Study5

The study enrolled 287 patients:

  • 89.1 mm mean stenosed lesion length
  • 70.0% moderate to severe calcification
  • 48.1% total occlusions
  • 73.0% stents ≥ 100 mm
  • 95.0% single stent
  • Low PSVR threshold of < 2.0

The first controlled study to focus on treating long, complex lesions and to specifically test the performance of a single long stent in the superficial femoral artery. 

Three years later, the results continue to offer evidence that even in long, complex lesions, the EverFlex stent can sustain patency and durability.6
