BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company) a leading global medical technology company, announced the FDA has granted premarket approval for the Venovo venous stent, the first stent indicated to treat iliofemoral venous occlusive disease, which is obstructed or narrowed blood flow specific to the iliac and femoral veins located near the groin.

The Venovo™ venous stent is a flexible nitinol stent specifically designed to reopen blocked iliac and femoral veins in order to maintain adequate blood flow. The Venovo venous stent is designed with a balance of radial strength, compression resistance and flexibility needed for the treatment of symptomatic post-thrombotic and non-thrombotic iliofemoral lesions. Additionally, the broad stent sizing allows clinicians to treat large diameter veins and long lesion lengths.
