Triaxial delivery system for precise stent delivery, with thumbwheel and pull grip options for intuitive deployment.
Proper deployment technique is critical for predictable, controlled stent deployment - especially for 150 mm stents.
Roll the thumbwheel of the deployment handle in the direction of the arrow indicated on the handle.
Continue to roll thumbwheel until the middle shaft radiopaque marker band passes the distal stent radiopaque markers. Watch for the distal stent radiopaque markers to begin separating as stent starts deploying.
Continue turning the thumbwheel until the middle shaft radiopaque marker passes the proximal stent markers resulting in full deployment, or until arrow is visible on pull grip.
Long stents (150 mm) require pull grip activation to complete deployment
Anchor the handle and gently pull the manual pull grip until the middle shaft radiopaque marker band passes the proximal radiopaque markers of the stent resulting in full deployment. When activating the pull-grip, avoid rapid deployment.
View the delivery system underfluoroscopy, ensuring that the stentis fully deployed.
To remove the system, grasp the guidewire a short distance from the distal end of the handle and repeatedly feed the wire into the delivery system handle to retract the system over the wire.
