IMPROVING PERFORMANCE BY IMITATING
THE NATURAL 3D HELICAL SHAPE OF THE
Veryan has developed innovative technology to improve the performance of vascular stents by adopting the principle of biomimicry; developing structures that imitate those occurring naturally. Veryan’s vascular biomimetic stent technology involves adapting a straight stent design to a three-dimensional helical shape, which more closely mimics the natural geometry of the human vascular system. The BioMimics 3D stent belongs to a new generation of self-expanding stent design with advanced biomechanical and flow performance properties, creating the potential to transform the treatment of patients with symptomatic peripheral arterial disease of the lower limbs. This highly differentiated technology has been clinically proven in a multicentre, randomised clinical trial (the Mimics study) in superficial femoral and proximal popliteal (femoropopliteral) arteries of the leg and received CE Mark approval in November 2012.
