ENDOcare says it plans to start trials of its nitinol urinary stent in 1997. The stent is designed for temporary relief of obstructions. ENDOcare says stenting overcomes the limitations that urinary catheters place on the lifestyle of those who use them, while the shape-memory properties of the nitinol alloy will reduce the trauma of removal.
