Terumo is launching in Europe its RelayPro Thoracic Stent-Graft System, initially being released to a limited set of institutions with wider availability expected soon.

The device is designed to allow patients with narrower access vessels to benefit from thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) procedures. It’s based on the previously available RelayPlus, but with an outer diameter 3 to 4 French narrower, depending on the size of the devices.

The RelayPro is available as a bare stent or as a non-bare stent.

“By combining the proven stent design and material of RelayPlus with a lower outer profile, RelayPro enables percutaneous access to treat a larger patient population,” in a statement said Mark Miles, Global Vice President of Marketing at Terumo Aortic. “This advancement not only expands patient applicability but will help improve access site complications and ultimately reduce the burden of rising global healthcare costs.”
