Pantera Lux

Clinically proven solution for in-stent restenosis and de novo lesions

Clinical outcomes from multiple studies1-8 including randomized controlled trials like BIOLUX RCT, ISAR-DESIRE 4 and PEBSI show high efficacy and safety for both in-stent restenosis and de novo lesions.

Lux coating technology for rapid drug absorption

Prolonged tissue retention at the target site9, 10

Pig coronary artery Paclitaxel tissue concentrations

Advanced trackability

Pantera Lux, with its low crossing profile, provides advanced trackability to successfully reach and treat most cases in daily practice.
