Increased Stent Fracture Resistance

Less Fracture than Cobalt Alloy Stents Tested1

Bend Fatigue Bench Test1

The Promus PREMIERTM Stent is designed to be more fracture resistant than Cobalt Alloy stents tested.1

Higher stent fracture rates have been associated with a higher level of MACE.2

Clinical and Economic Impact of Stent Fracture

Stent fractures evaluated resulted in a 10x increase in MACE rate and an average additional cost of $3,539 per event.3

39 Total incidences of Xience V™ Stent Fracture (SF) = 2.9% of total lesions evaluated.2
