The Supera Peripheral Stent System is a unique class of technology that allows the Supera stent to mimic the anatomy's natural movement and is an effective option for the dynamic environment of the SFA and popliteal arteries. Supera is clinically proven, demonstrating excellent patency in the SUPERB trial and has been analyzed in over 1,600 patients worldwide in the SUPERB trial and 13 retrospective studies1.
INTERWOVEN STENT DESIGN
The Supera stent mimics the natural structure and movement of the anatomy. The innovative, interwoven nitinol design creates a stent that supports rather than resists the vessel.2 By pre-dilating and matching the stent and vessel 1:1, Supera stent supports the vessel with minimal chronic outward force.5,6
STRENGTH AND FLEXIBILITY
Supera stent has unparalleled strength and flexibility, with more than four times the compression resistance of all other standard nitinol stents.3,7 In severely calcified lesions, Supera stent has visible compression resistance, maintaining a round, open lumen for normal, healthy blood flow in challenging anatomy.2
- 86.3% primary patency (K-M) at 1 year
- 87.6% freedom from TLR in severe calcium at 3 years8
- 0 fracture at 1 year

3. Strength is defined as compression resistance The compression resistance for a 5.0 x 100 mm Supera implant is 9 kg at 53% compression. This is four times the compression resistance of all other competitors. All other products compressed 53% with less than 2.25 kg applied. Data on file at Abbott Vascular
