Abstract

See full text

A method and system for treating a bodily lumen with an implantable medical device, such as a stent, are disclosed. The device may be disposed within a bodily lumen and radially expanded by circumferentially deforming a tube-like section of the device. The deforming section may expand the lumen and the deformed section may support the lumen.
