The DFS is built on the proven platform of the Resolute Integrity(TM) DES with Continuous Sinusoid Technology (a unique Medtronic method of stent manufacturing that forms one single strand of wire into a sinusoidal wave enabling a continuous range of motion), as well as the next-generation Resolute Onyx(TM) DES with CoreWire Technology that allows it to have a denser core metal surrounded by a cobalt alloy outer layer for thinner struts with enhanced radiopacity (visibility during imaging).
CoreWire Technology builds on Continuous Sinusoid Technology (CST), a method of stent manufacturing first introduced with Medtronic's Resolute Integrity DES, which molds one single strand of wire into a sinusoidal wave enabling a continuous range of motion.
Unlike the rest of the shore line, it takes the form of a decaying sinusoidal wave just behind the BWs.
We expect that there will be three modes for which the proposing sinusoidal wave may be propagated in the medium.
Consider the flow of a particulate suspension through a two-dimensional channel of non-uniform thickness with a sinusoidal wave traveling down its wall.
