Picture of a Stent

 

A stent is a metallic mesh coil generally composed of a cobalt chromium alloy mesh with ultra thin, rounded struts. Some refer to the stent as miniature chicken wire or lattice work. Below is a picture inside an artery with an installed stent. Arrows show how the blood flows through the artery. (The walls of the artery are not shown.)

 

 

Shown is a Medtronix Stent. This Stent design features multiple rings of struts joined together by limited inter-strut connectors. The strut assembly prevents the artery along the length of the installed stent from collapsing while not limiting the flow of blood along the same length. This stent design comes in varying ring sizes from 2.25 to 4.00 mm, and the length of this stent can vary from 8 to 30 mm.
