IDev Launches 180- and 200-mm Supera Stents in Europe

October 21, 2010—IDev Technologies, Inc. (Webster, TX) announced the European launch of two stents of 180- and 200-mm lengths to its Supera product line for treating patients with peripheral vascular disease.

According to IDev, Supera stents incorporate a wire interwoven nitinol design that provides radial strength, flexibility, and high resistance to kinking and fracturing. The 180- and 200-mm sizes are designed for the treatment of long lesions in patients with peripheral vascular disease. The Supera stents are delivered by the Supera Veritas peripheral vascular system, which was launched in Europe in May 2010.

Dierk Scheinert, MD, one of the first to deploy the longer-sized stents, commented, “I've used the Supera product for several years and appreciate the ongoing enhancements to the system. First, Veritas made it easier and more accurate to deploy the stent. Now the 180- and 200-mm sizes allow me to treat longer and more difficult lesions; they deploy easily and add to a broad stent portfolio.”
