DES (Drug Eluting Stent)


Yukon® Choice PC

Biodegradable polymer with micro-porous surface

Unique Stent Surface
  • The Translumina Yukon Choice PC represents the next generation stent system technology with a surface of unique micro-pores. This stent has been developed in order to improve healing of the vessel wall. Latest clinical results and scientific reports [1][2][3][4] confirm the efficiency and biocompatibility of the surface.
  • The micro-porous stent surface, called PEARL Surface, favours better endothelialisation, which is essential in avoiding thrombosis and restenosis.
  • Approx. 1 million pores per cm2 with average micro pore depth of approx. 2µm





Optimized Sirolimus Drug
  • Proven immunosuppressive and anti-inflammatory properties.
  • High lipophilic and hydrophobic profile for faster tissue absorption,
  • German automated drug coating machine to coat the abluminal side of the stent only for drug release to targeted tissue.
Biodegradable Polymer
  • Fully degradable RESOMERR 202S
  • Yukon® Choice PC becomes a BMS Between 6-9 month as the polymer completely degrades.
