The self-expanding nitinol stent is approved for use alongside metal coils to pack weakened blood vessels in the brain. It received prior approval under a humanitarian device exemption, confining its use to approved hospitals.

The stent features improved conformability and a “low-profile” delivery system that assists in the treatment of difficult aneurysms.
