Nuloy allows ICON to manufacture stents with increased strength, radiopacity and deliverability, and decreased elastic recoil compared with that in existing stent materials.
The implants are designed to compress diseased tissue, restore elastic recoil in the lung, and re-tension the diseased airway network, relieving breathlessness and allowing patients to perform more activities of daily living.

The transition is characterized by a strong elastic recoil after fracture.
Since the mechanical scaffold of a bioresorbable stent is only required over a limited healing period to avoid elastic recoil of the artery, an alternative non-permanent treatment with a bioresorbable stent is commonly regarded as the next-generation therapeutic device," said Machiel van der Leest, CEO, who previously was a co-founder and Chief Technology Officer of Minvasys.
Treatment of these lesions can be complicated by challenging anatomy that makes catheter delivery difficult, balloon slippage leading to "geographic miss", elastic recoil and the need to use high pressures to open lesions.
