This article was originally published in Clinica
Guidant has received US FDA 510(k) clearance to market its Dynalink biliary self-expanding stent system. The device can be fed through a 6 French catheter, which allows for a lower system profile and enables physicians to perform the stenting procedure through a smaller puncture site. The stent, which is made from nitinol, is Guidant's first FDA-cleared self-expanding stent.
