Advancing the Science of DE Technologies

The significant improvements in primary patency and target lesion revascularization rates associated with drug-eluting therapies are impacting the decisions of endovascular specialists. Staying on top of these rapid advancements takes established clinical leadership and a commitment to researching and developing innovative therapies that can make a difference in patients’ lives. 

Dr. Miguel Montero-Baker discusses why drug-eluting stent technology is important in SFA interventions.

“We’ve now realized that we need a drug effect to avoid intimal hyperplasia….So we're on the right path.”

Proven Polymer-Based Technology with Proven Biocompatibility

The Eluvia Stent uses the same fluoropolymer as the PROMUS™ and XIENCE™ coronary stents which have a proven history of safety in the body.

Over 20 million plus implants
  1. Data on file at Boston Scientific. Represents total global sales of the PROMUS (Boston Scientific) and XIENCE (Abbott) stents since 2006.
100,000 patients studied in clinical trials
  1. Data on file at Boston Scientific. Represents total population of patients studied in the PROMUS and XIENCE series of clinical trials.
 
Dr. Robert Lookstein discusses the need to refine drug-eluting technologies in order to improve patency rates.

“It's very, very clear that we're going to need pharmacokinetics to be refined in order to offer improvement in patency, so controlled drug delivery over a longer time frame is clearly a step in the right direction.”
