Medical / stents
French term or phrase: sertissge usiné sur ballonet
A list of the advantages of a particular steng, among which 'tres bas profil de sertissage permettant un faible diametre di'introduction (very low crimping profile?); techniques de découpe et de polissage améliorées; sertissge usiné sur ballonet de derniere generation.

Previously I had come across 'serti' as meaning 'premounted' and non-serti as 'bare'. But sertissage also seems to mean crimping. How should it be translated here?

machined lock-seam on


Explanation:
I found this in Termium and it seems to fit.

Anglais :Formage des métaux

lock-seam forming s

Français :Formage des métaux

======

I understnad "sertissage usiné" to mean that the stent is manufactured with a "lock seam" that is then "machined" or smoothed.


======

I would have to know more to suggest anything for ballonet.
