Stent System Compliance

For balloon-expandable stents, a table of inflation pressure versus expanded diameter is developed and included in the labeling. The expanded stent inside diameter at each inflation pressure is the mean of all measurements taken on all stents at that pressure. The inflation pressure is expressed in atmospheres.


This attribute does not apply to self-expanding stents.
