XIENCE Sierra vs. Orsiro
Strut thickness, as with many design considerations of drug-eluting stents (DES), is a balancing act: too thick and critical post-deployment aspects like endothealial coverage or blood flow could be at risk; too thin and mechanical metrics could be affected, such as weaker radial strength, compromised visbility, greater risk of dislodgement, and longitudinal stent deformation6-9. XIENCE balances this important design goal, as shown in acute thrombogenicity performance and clinical safety endpoints1.
Best Stent Retention on the Market2
XIENCE Sierra delivers market-leading stent retention, which is critical in challenging anatomy. Stent retention data6 show that XIENCE Sierra is:
Stronger Than Synergy
Stronger Than Orsiro
Stronger Than Resolute Onyx
Significantly Greater Radial Strength3
The stent design goal of a DES is to balance acute performance with mechanical strength while achieving exceptional pushability, crossability, and flexibility.

Mechanical strength isn´t the only consideration when treating complex patients. Radiopacity is an important attribute of any DES, and XIENCE Sierra offers better visability compared to Orsiro.
