XIENCE Skypoint™ Stent has improved maximum expansion compared to previous generations, so interventional cardiologists (ICs) can use XIENCE™ Stents to treat a broader range of vessels.
For ICs encountering larger vessels, this stent provides significant stent expansion: up to 5.75 mm when deploying 3.5, and 4.0 mm stents.
Smaller stents—2.25, 2.5, 2.75, 3.0, 3.25 mm lengths—continue to expand to 3.75 mm.2
Large Tapered Vessels: XIENCE Skypoint™ Stent provides a large expansion range designed to help treat patients with large tapered lesions—with a single stent.6
Small Tapered Vessels: Similarly, choosing a smaller diameter XIENCE Skypoint™ Stent allows ICs to treat a small tapered vessel, from 2.25 mm to 3.75 mm.6
The XIENCE™ family of stents are built on the MULTI-LINK platform. Its 3 links per ring connect the peaks of one ring to the valleys of the adjacent ring. This prevents struts from either compressing together or stretching apart.
With the MULTI-LINK stent platform, XIENCE™ Stents have better longitudinal strength, compared to other DES.7 This reduces the possibility of displacement or deformation for XIENCE Skypoint™ Stents.
Compression tests reveal significantly improved longitudinal strength with XIENCE™ Stents compared to Synergy‡ and Resolute Onyx‡ DES.
Compression tests of 3.0 mm x 48 mm stents reveal excellent longitudinal strength with XIENCE Skypoint™ Stent—similar to XIENCE Xpedition™ Stent but significantly better than Synergy‡. So even when long lesions require PCI, the longitudinal strength of XIENCE Skypoint™ Stent sets it apart from other DES.
For long lesions, the 48 mm XIENCE Skypoint™ Stent, compared to the XIENCE Xpedition™ Stent, is designed with narrower crests and tighter nesting. These features allow for a lower crossing profile of just 0.041".
For long lesions, the 48 mm XIENCE Skypoint™ Stent’s design enhancements allow for improved expansion. Compared to the XIENCE Xpedition™ Stent, XIENCE Skypoint™ Stent is designed with elongated bar arms—offering better post-dilation (5.75 mm) expansion.
Together, all of these features lead to trusted patient outcomes, regardless of the diameter and length of the XIENCE Skypoint™ Stent deployed.
