By keeping the artery smooth and wide open, this promotes healthy blood flow. These stents perform better than self-expanding and balloon-expanding stents and are typically utilised for the lower extremities. Thus, the rising use of cutting-edge cardiovascular treatments and the development of drug-eluting stent technology.
