Pushing the boundaries of science and medical engineering for the improvement of health: Ultimaster combines an optimal balance between stent design for ultimate conformability with simultaneous polymer resorption and drug release, to match the procedure-triggered biological response in the vessel.1 This results in optimal vessel recovery and potentially shortened DAPT time.2Mastering rapid and healthy coronary vascular repair.
No drug polymer coating on parts of the stent that experience the most physical stress.5
Gradient coating ensures polymer integrity reducing risk of delamination, even when overexpanded3
Test method: Expand a cell with a balloon at nominal pressureCell area: 14.5 mm²
Recommended DES in ESC/EACTS 2014 guidelines.6
1 month DAPT. CE Mark approved for patients in need.2

Patients should be maintained on clinically adequate post-procedural antiplatelet therapy according to the current guidelines. In case of need, dual antiplatelet therapy can be discontinued earlier, but not before one month.3 Comparing to DES with uniform coating. Saito N. et al.
