The Maris Plus becomes the sixth stent platform now marketed by Invatec for the treatment of Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD), greatly optimizing visibility, flexibility and ease of use for the physician.

“At Invatec we pride ourselves on our ability to continually develop lesion specific solutions for Cardiovascular Arterial and Venous Disease. With the Maris Plus, we have created a novel, self-expanding stent platform specifically designed for the Iliac artery,” said Stefan Widensohler and Andrea Venturelli, co-founders of Invatec. The Maris Plus is available in a 30 – 100 mm length with 9.0 – 12.0 mm diameter, meeting the variable needs of the iliac region. The distinct stent geometry allows for increased stability in the hip, yet it remains the most flexible stent on the market. Additionally, larger and fully integrated tantalum markers greatly enhance visibility for the physician.
