The STENTYS Self-Apposing® Stent solves the stent-sizing dilemma that cardiologists are faced with when treating patients with complex anatomies. It “fits snugly” into the contour of a blood vessel, and its shape and diameter can adapt when the vessel dilates, eliminating malapposition and subsequent major complications seen with all other conventional stents.
Based in Princeton, N.J., and Paris, STENTYS has developed a new generation of stents to treat acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and bifurcation lesions. Founded by Jacques Séguin, M.D., Ph.D., and Gonzague Issenmann, STENTYS received CE-marking for its flagship products in 2010. Its Self-Apposing stent adapts to the anatomic changes of arteries in the post-infarction phase and thus prevents the malapposition problem associated with conventional stents. STENTYS has commenced marketing activities in several European countries.
