The daily routine practice of interventional cardiology shows that 30-40% percent of the total amount of interventions are carried out in small vessels, meaning coronary arteries with diameter less than 2.7mm. Surely, this is challenging and of special demand as international recognized study trials like ISAR I and II confirmed that stents made of common stainless steel composite encounter serious problems in small vessels where a bulky stent structure interferes the haemodynamic flow. The Co-Cr alloy used in ArthosPico allows cutting down the strut thickness about more than 50% percent in comparison to stainless steel, without any compromise towards radial force, giving a very flexible design. All these stent features in combination with an extraordinary flexible balloon catheter has formed an up-to-date BMS-system where even lesions of tortuous vessels are reachable.
