Excellent Deliverability with Xience Skypoint™ Stent

New design elements, plus proven ability to deliver with previous generations of XIENCE™ Stents, provide excellent deliverability for interventional cardiologists (ICs) encountering challenging lesions.

Catheter Enhancements

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

One piece comparison
Versus XIENCE Xpedition™ Stent, XIENCE Skypoint 48-mm Stent’s hypotube wall is 33% thicker, for improved pushability.



Excellent Deliverability

Data reveal excellent deliverability with XIENCE Skypoint™ Stent. This compares favorably with XIENCE Sierra™ Stent.4

Deliverability with XIENCE Skypoint Stent is 11% higher compared to XIENCE Sierra Stent.



Better Stent Retention

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

XIENCE Skypoint Stent performs better in stent retention tests compared to Synergy and Resolute Onyx drug-eluting stents.



Lower Crossing Forces with XIENCE Skypoint™ Stent6

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.

The crossing forces with XIENCE Skypoint Stent are significantly lower compared to Synergy and Resolute Onyx DES.




When using the XIENCE Skypoint™ 48-mm Stent, the hypotube has a 33% increase in wall thickness.7 

The crossing forces with XIENCE Skypoint Stent are significantly lower compared to Synergy and Resolute Onyx DES.



Excellent Push Efficiency with XIENCE Skypoint™ Stent8

Testing confirms better push efficiency, revealing a 5% improvement for XIENCE Skypoint™ Stent compared to XIENCE Xpedition™ Stent.
