Protégé RX Self-expanding Peripheral and Carotid Stent

Peripheral and Carotid Stenting

Overview

Select the Protégé™ RX GPS™ self-expanding peripheral and carotid stent system, in straight or tapered models, for custom fit in the common iliac, external iliac, subclavian, common carotid, or internal carotid arteries, and carotid bifurcation when stenting procedures are indicated. Tantalum GPS markers enhance visibility for precise positioning and result confirmation.


Indications

Peripheral

The stent is indicated for use in occlusions, lesions at high risk for abrupt closure or threatened closure following percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA); or lesions believed to be at high risk for restenosis following PTA in the common iliac, external iliac, or subclavian arteries. Stenting is intended to improve and maintain artery luminal diameter.

Carotid

The stent is indicated for treatment of stenoses of the common carotid artery (CCA), internal carotid artery (ICA), and carotid bifurcation.

All indications related to the PROTÉGÉ RX SELF EXPANDING PERIPHERAL AND CAROTID STENT are not approved globally, please refer to the complete Instructions for Use manual for the indication for Use approved in your geography.  


Product Details

Predictable Deployment

  • Proprietary EX.P.R.T.™ release technology essentially eliminates premature deployment or jumping.
  • There's no stent shortening.
  • Unique anatomically designed tapered stent for better fit in the carotid bifurcation.
  • Offers 0.014' rapid exchange catheter with 6 F low crossing profile and flexible atraumatic tip.
  • Radiopaque marker on catheter clearly indicates tapered location for precise positioning.

Visible Results

  • Tantalum GPS™ markers enhance visibility for precise positioning and result confirmation.
  • Cell design produces expansion force that resists compression while providing excellent wall apposition.
  • Straight and tapered options for customized fit in carotid vessels.

* The safety and efficacy of the Protege RX carotid stent system in the carotid indication has not been demonstrated with embolic protection devices other than with the SpiderFX™ embolic protection device.  The SpiderFX embolic protection device has been demonstrated to be compatible with the Protege RX carotid stent system in bench and animal testing.

The clinical data contained within this document reflects data generated using the Protege GPS™ carotid stent system but has been determined to be applicable to the Protege RX carotid stent system in bench and animal testing

Defined as successful deployment and retrieval of distal protection device, successful stent deployment and final diameter stenosis < 50%.
