Value of Platinum Chromium (PtCr) Stents
Interventional Cardiologists Agree
It’s no surprise that 95 percent of Interventional Cardiologists identified PtCr stents as the most visible under angiography1. Enhanced visibility can impact device usage, procedure times and radiation exposure in the cath lab. But what could this mean for your bottom line? See Results

For an average hospital, this means that PtCr could save over $133,000 per year due to increased visibility2.
The group collectively believed that a more visible stent could lead to reduced procedure times, resulting in potential savings of $162,5003, 4.
Exposure is an important issue in today’s cath lab. Physicians in this survey believed that stent visibility could reduce cath lab staff and patient exposure to radiation, resulting in a potential reduction of over 25 hours per year5.
