Orsiro Mission DES available in expanded maximum allowed diameters range


Biotronik has announced the availability of an expanded maximum allowed diameters (MAD) range for the Orsiro Mission drug-eluting stent (DES).

Diameters 2.25–3mm of the Orsiro Mission DES can now be extended up to 4mm, while diameters 3.5mm and 4mm can reach up to 5mm.

This new MAD expansion follows the approvals from CE, US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and Health Canada obtained in the past months. This update reflects a global effort for the Orsiro Mission stent technology to match contemporary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), enabling practitioners to optimise vessel apposition and conform to tapered anatomies, Biotronik said in a press release.

Subsequently to these approvals, an updated labelling, additionally to the modified instructions for use (IFU), will provide further guidance to practitioners.
