The BioMimics 3D Vascular Stent System is indicated to improve luminal diameter in the treatment of symptomatic de novo or restenotic lesions in the native superficial femoral artery and/or proximal popliteal artery, with reference vessel diameters ranging from 4.0 – 6.0 mm and lesion lengths up to 140 mm.

Co-axial, over-the-wire delivery system


  • A peripheral self-expanding stent with a unique 3D helical centreline1
  • Laser cut from a straight nitinol tube, the 3D helical shape is stored in the nitinol shape memory
  • Three tantalum radiopaque markers are located at each end of the stent to aid placement


  • Unique 3D stent shape generates swirling flow raising wall shear stress (WSS) to reduce intimal hyperplasia2
  • Improved biomechanical performance3
  • Excellent fracture resistance4
  • Significantly better performance than a straight stent control in a randomised fempop study5
