Stents, Vascular, Peripheral

Definition : Vascular stents designed for deployment into one of the peripheral arteries, especially those that supply blood to the lower extremities, such as the iliac, femoral, and popliteal arteries. These devices may consist of a metallic (e.g., meshlike wire) or plastic tube, and they are available in several different shapes (e.g., straight, bent) to adapt to particular sections of the peripheral arteries and/or to prevent migration. Metallic stents may be either balloon-expandable or self-expanding. Peripheral vascular stents are designed to form a scaffold that holds the arteries open. Some of these stents are designed for a specific peripheral artery (e.g., iliac, femoral, popliteal).
