Medtronic introduces Entrust delivery system in US

Irish medical technology firm Medtronic has introduced its Entrust delivery system in the US, which is designed to allow physicians to place the firm’s EverFlex self-expanding peripheral stent.

The EverFlex stent has been developed to treat long, complex and highly calcified lesions.

The Entrust delivery system is said to deploy the EverFlex stent to re-open narrowed (stenotic) regions of the superficial femoral and proximal popliteal arteries, which supply blood to the legs.

It offers control and precision with its 5 F triaxial delivery system, as well as with other features, including 0.035 guidewire compatibility, longer catheter lengths, and a broad stent matrix.

Medtronic Aortic and Peripheral Vascular division peripheral vascular general manager and vice-president Brian Verrier said: "Based on physician feedback and procedural observation, we developed an easy to use one-handed delivery system to increase the stent delivery options in our portfolio.

"Both the Entrust delivery system and the EverFlex Stent with the pin-pull delivery system provide enhanced choice and treatment solutions for peripheral arterial disease."
