An improved and simple stent detachment system for the transcatheter implantation of stents and heart valves.
This system suits any stent system with controlled deployment or repositioning capacity.
The transcatheter stent detachment system developed by researchers at the University of California, Irvine may be used with different repositionable heart valve and stent deployment systems; and the system detaches easily and safely from the stent once the heart valve is successfully implanted.
