Qmedics Peripheral stent system family
Exist, Falcor and Draco
After two and a half years of hard work finally we present the new peripheral stent family.
It was a difficult path: The R&D efforts where enormous, as designing a stent portfolio that has a disease (PAD) as indication with a stent design that has to take into account both movability and lesion characteristics was for our engineers a tremendous challenge.
The regulatory hurdles were associated with long-term stress, tension, many uncertainties, long waiting times at the notified body and if this was not enough the COVID-19 came along. But we made it thanks to all who did believe in the project and didn’t give up.
Our novel SDS portfolio tackles the PAD complexity in terms of artery in-vivo loading, lesion characteristics and movability of the artery hereby giving the operator a wider choice of solutions to treat the patient.
The new stent portfolio has three variants 4F, 5F & 6F variant has two types. A Pull type with a higher radial force, engineered to provide a perfect balance between compression resistance and longitudinal conformability without sacrificing flexibility. The Flex type can act as a strong scaffold, provides flexibility without sacrificing radial strength, provide high acceptance towards bending, and compression. We are proud to present Exist 6F, Falcor 5F and Draco 4F.
