Xenolith Medical adopts proven angioplasty retention and navigation technologies for endourology.
The major technological innovative step consists of a novel mechanical structure implemented as a self-expandable braided mesh with ultra-high expansion ratio (x25).
This high expansion ratio enables insertion of the stone retention device into the ureter as a slender wire, less than 1.0mm in its outer diameter, and allowing its self-expansion in the ureter to a maximum width of 12 mm.
Advanced wire technologies such as hydrophilic coating and kink-resistant materials are used in order to allow excellent navigation and maneuverability past occluding stones.
