Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0028922A1] A stent (12) for use in a non-uniform deployment site such as in a tapered or bifurcated artery or in an ostial region. The stent (12) has a non-uniform structure selected to accommodate the non-uniformities inherent in the particular diseased area which it is intended to support. Non-uniformities can include differentiation in terms of its expansion ratio, radial strength, coverage and longitudinal flexibility.
