Supera™ Stent Lesion Preparation

Per the Instructions for Use, physicians should prepare the vessel using standard angioplasty technique; balloon size should be greater than or equal to the stent diameter. Refer to the IFU for additional information.

Guidelines for Stent Sizing

The illustration below shows that every 0.5 mm increase provides an estimated 19% to 27% growth in luminal gain (cross-sectional area).

Precaution: The post-dilated vessel should be at least the size of the stent diameter. If recommended vessel diameter cannot be gained, optimal stent deployment may not be achieved and revised stent sizing should be considered.
