Its mesh frame adopts high-performance nitinol material, which features excellent hyperelasticity, resilience, and biocompatibility. Its waist uses patent fabric PET membrane and double-layered non-woven fabric, which has a better effect of blocking blood flow and tissue repair. Its delivery system is made of imported reinforced PTFE material to ensure the intensity and resilience of the sheath while achieving bigger inner diameter, making it easier for clinical operation.
