Products Stent for veins
The stent is used for reinforcing weak vein walls and for widening narrow veins.

The chilled stent is brought into position through a probe, and expands to its original size when warmed up to body temperature.

The stent replaces similar stainless steel stents that are expanded with a little baloon.
