EU clears Eurocor's coronary stent
The Taxcor Plus, a paclitaxel-eluting coronary stent system, has received a CE mark of approval for device distribution.

Stent manufacturer Eurocor, based in Bonn, Germany, said its Taxcor Plus is made of cobalt chrome and the medication coating occurs without use of polymers, reducing the risk of inflammation, reactions and a delayed recovery.
