LIFESTENT® 5F Vascular Stent System

LIFESTENT® 5F Vascular Stent System

Clinically Proven Stent Design:

As the only commercially available stent FDA-approved for the superficial femoral and full popliteal artery, the LIFESTENT® Vascular Stent has a history of proven performance:

  • In a Level 1 RESILIENT study, the LIFESTENT® Vascular Stent demonstrated treatment superiority over balloon angioplasty with sustained effectiveness out to 3 years4
  • In the investigator initiated, Level 1 ETAP study of the popliteal artery the LIFESTENT® Vascular Stent demonstrated double the primary patency rate of PTA out to two years5
  • In a clinical assessment of the treatment of long lesions, the LIFESTENT® Vascular Stent demonstrated high primary patency at 12 months in lesions up to 240mm6

The LIFESTENT® Vascular Stent Systems, in varying sizes, have been studied in more than ten clinical trials globally.7

LIFESTENT® 5F Vascular Stent System

LIFESTENT® 5F Vascular Stent System

Low Profile, 5F Delivery System:

The LIFESTENT® 5F Vascular Stent System offers the same clinically-proven advanced helical stent design as the LIFESTENT® Vascular Stent on a low profile, 5F delivery system. The LIFESTENT® 5F delivery system offers dual speed thumbwheel deployment with a tri-axial catheter that is designed for ease of use, deployment control, and precise placement accuracy.2

The LIFESTENT® 5F Vascular Stent System is part of the Bard 5F ProSeries suite of low profile products designed to minimize arteriotomy size and enable physicians to complete a 5F procedure when treating the SFA and popliteal artery. The Bard 5F ProSeries also includes:

Increase Procedure Efficiency with GEOALIGN®

The LIFESTENT® 5F Vascular Stent System features the GEOALIGN® Marking System, which is a simple-to-use, non-radiopaque ruler on the catheter shaft. The GEOALIGN® Marking System is featured on all Bard 5F ProSeries products. The GEOALIGN® Marking System is designed to facilitate repeatable catheter alignment at the lesion and to increase procedure efficiency by minimizing fluoroscopy exposure.3

The LIFESTENT® 5F Vascular Stent System is a peripheral stent intended to improve luminal diameter in the treatment of symptomatic de-novo or restenotic lesions in the native superficial femoral artery (SFA) and popliteal artery. The LIFESTENT® 5F Vascular Stent System is available in 5 mm, 6 mm, and 7 mm diameters; and 20 mm to 170 mm in length. Refer to the Specifications table below for specific size options.
