Abstract

See full text

A stent for the transluminal implantation in hollow organs, in particular in blood vessels, ureters, oesophagi or gall tracts, is described, having a substantially tubular body which has a plurality of apertures which are each bounded by elongated boundary elements. In each case at least two boundary elements bounding the same aperture and arranged alongside one another in the circumferential direction are extended beyond the end of the aperture and form a unitary detection element. The detection element has a greater width in the circumferential direction of the stent than each of the boundary elements.
