The optimal design of the Ultimaster Nagomi™ makes it suitable for any small or large sized coronary artery, enabling customized stent selection for a larger patient subset.
Mr. Shishir Agarwal, President and Managing Director of Terumo India, expressed, “Ultimaster Nagomi™️ embodies the legacy of Japanese technology, supported by robust clinical evidence from the Ultimaster™️ family across various procedures. Our goal is to introduce cutting-edge Japanese technologies to benefit all Indian patients, allowing them access to the latest innovations in healthcare.”
