PK Papyrus covered coronary stent system
Biotronik’s PK Papyrus covered coronary stent system is a balloon-expandable covered stent that is implanted into a coronary artery using a balloon catheter delivery system.
The device is designed to treat coronary artery perforations, or tears in heart blood vessels.
The PK Papyrus’ delivery balloon catheter is positioned at the site of a coronary artery perforation. The balloon is then inflated to expand the covered stent, press it against the coronary artery wall and seal the perforation while allowing normal blood flow. The stent is permanently implanted in the coronary artery.
