New design elements, plus proven ability to deliver with previous generations of XIENCE™ Stents, provide excellent deliverability for interventional cardiologists (ICs) encountering challenging lesions.
Unlike prior generations of XIENCE™ Stent, XIENCE Skypoint™ Stent has a seamless one-piece catheter shaft that optimizes pushability.2 In addition, the guide wire notch profile is reduced by 0.001”.3
Data reveal excellent deliverability with XIENCE Skypoint™ Stent. This compares favorably with XIENCE Sierra™ Stent.4
High stent retention helps prevent dislodgement and help ensure safe crossing, even when treating complex lesions. Testing reveals that XIENCE Skypoint™ Stent retention rates are better than those of Synergy‡ and Resolute Onyx‡ DES, reaching statistical significance.5
Lower crossing forces can also aid in optimizing stent deliverability. Note that XIENCE Skypoint™ Stent crossing forces are significantly lower than those of Synergy‡ and Resolute Onyx‡ DES.
When using the XIENCE Skypoint™ 48-mm Stent, the hypotube has a 33% increase in wall thickness.7
