Executive Summary

A new coronary stent made of cobalt alloy and coated with a thin layer of protein may provide a welcome alternative to traditional bare-metal or drug-eluting stents. When placed in the body, the prohealing PROTEX coronary stent system from Nexeon MedSystems is recognized by the body as having the architecture of a normal artery. Hence, according to the start-up, the body begins to populate the stent quickly with regular functioning cells, rather than reacting to the stent as a foreign metal. Because the thin, low-profile stent platform is biomimetic, rapid healing should occur.
