Intravascular radially expandable stent and method of implant

Image Number 2 for United States Patent #4886062.

A device to be used as a vascular stent comprising a cylindrical open-ended wire component made of a low memory metal such as copper alloy, titanium, or gold, providing a radial support from within a blood vessel after implantation therein. The coronary stent is characterized by its ability to be expanded radially to a larger diameter after initial implantation and means for causing said stent to expand to a larger diameter and a method for transporting, positioning and implantation of such coronary stent transluminarely to have said stent act as a permanent prosthesis to assure vascular patency. And method for simultaneous angioplasty and stent implant procedure.
