Aurios developed advanced technology to construct stents with a thickness measuring 100 µm, which corresponded to one-third the thickness of the previously available BRS, which was equivalent to the thickness of human hair.
Although its thickness was significantly reduced, the mechanical strength of the stent remained the same to effectively support the vessel.
Such technical superiority was the outcome of proprietary technologies using a femtosecond laser.
Femtosecond lasers are used in the field of precision medicine such as to perform Lasik surgery in ophthalmological practice.
This technology allows accurate cutting of stent material without damaging the cut sections.
Benefits of BRS
Prevention of late stent thrombosis
Reduction of neoatherrosclerosis
Late lumen vessel enlargement
Stable drug-coated layer
