The Palmaz XL stent (Cordis) is a stainless-steel stent designed to be manually mounted on a balloon. Cautious mounting is warranted to avoid potential mal-deployment of the stent. Several mounting techniques are utilized. This chapter delineates the following three mounting techniques to achieve an accurate deployment of the Palmaz stent: use of a second balloon during deployment, use of a long delivery balloon, and use of an asymmetrically mounted stent and long delivery sheath to prevent distal herniation of the Palmaz stent. All three techniques can be used with most Palmaz stent deployments. These techniques are useful for both thoracic and abdominal aortic interventions.
