Astron Pulsar

Vascular Intervention // Peripheral
Self-Expanding Stent System/0.018”/OTW

Astron® Pulsar ®


     155 μm thin struts

     4F low profile

     Simple stent deployment






155 μm thin struts - thinner than the leading brands1

 

 


Thinner struts for low Chronic Outward Force (COF)2





 

 

 

 

 


Thinner struts and lower COF make a difference:*

 

 

 

  • Lower risk of restenosis3
  • Reduced vessel injury and inflammation4
  • Faster endothelialization5

*As demonstrated in pre-clinical studies



1mm stent oversizing at 90 days 6




4F Low Profile - Improved acute outcomes vs. 6F7

 

 


Potential for safer, faster and simpler procedures than 6F

 

 

  • Clinically proven lower access site complication rates7
  • Shorter compression time8
  • 45% smaller puncture site area than 6F9
  • No need for a closure device

 


 


Simple stent deployment7


 

 


 

 

Astron® Pulsar ®

Indicated for use in patients with atherosclerotic disease of the femoral and infrapopliteal arteries and for the treatment of insufficient results after percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA).*
