About the Vesper Duo Venous Stent System
The Vesper DUO Venous Stent System® is a next generation venous technology that advances the treatment of deep venous disease. Vesper Medical’s portfolio approach enables the clinician to tailor treatment in the iliofemoral venous anatomy based on disease patterns and severity. The DUO-HYBRID™ stent has a distinct integrated design that changes along its length from high crush resistance in the iliac region to high flexibility in the pelvic region, thus targeting the dynamic loading conditions in the iliofemoral venous system. The DUO-EXTEND™ stent is engineered to smoothly integrate with the DUO-HYBRID stent to provide physicians the flexibility to treat longer lesions.
