Stentys self-apposing stent was designed to face complex lesions in the precincts of percutaneous coronary interventions. Nitinol platform and disconnectable struts were designed to provide a complete apposition on the vessel wall in challenging lesions such as significant tapering, primary angioplasty in ST segment elevation myocardial infarction and bifurcation. Stentys X-Position S is a sirolimus eluting stent with a novel delivery system aiming to improve positioning. Clinical trials showed good results in terms of procedural success rate, clinical outcome and short term strut apposition. Nevertheless, Stentys stent did not show superiority over the conventional balloon-expandable stents in the clinical outcomes. Authors underlined the importance of a learning curve and an adequate training period to get familiar with the device’s features. Future trials in an all-comer population using the novel X-Position S stent will confirm the preliminary findings and strengthen evidence in clinical practice.


KEY WORDS: STENTYS stent; Self-apposing stent; Nitinol platform
