Cypher Elite Stent is intended to reduce in-stent restenosis. It provides a scaffold to open the artery and a unique anti-rejection-type medication, sirolimus that helps to limit the overgrowth of normal cells while the artery heals. The stent reduces the chances of re-blockage in the treated area. It is provided with a closed-cell stent delivery platform. Upon placement, sirolimus elutes into the vessel wall and impedes the process of neointimal hyperplasia, thereby significantly reducing the incidence of in-stent restenosis.
