Stening® High Pressure Stent

Code SAP


With a more robust wall, this model is very resistant to max compression.

When any stent is put under a strength test that compresses it with loads that increase gradually, the stent’s paulatine deformation takes place until it reaches the cession point. Here, the prosthesis suffers a higher deformation, with a notorious reduction of its radial resistance to flattening. This break point

is about 900 g/cm2 in a classical stent.

In the Stening® High Pressure Stent the tolerance to compression increases surpassing the 2000 g/cm2.

Its wall’s thickness increase is accompanied by an inevitable reduction in the area available  for air flow.
