This article was originally published in Start Up
An alternative to traditional stents to treat peripheral arterial disease, Intact Vascular Inc.’s Tack Endovascular System uses multiple, small nitinol implants to reduce metal exposure when treating peripheral arterial disease. The Tack system minimizes the metal that is left in the artery compared with a stent and also decreases the vessel inflammation associated with stents.
