How can I make an exact wrap around a cylinder?

Hello,

 

I am trying to do some mechanical simulations of a stent, which I designed with Solidworks. The problem is that I used the following process: design-extrude-wrap around a cylinder and the warping didn't lead to an EXACT closure of the top and bottom surfaces (attached picture); there is a gap between them (as seen in the picture attached).

 

Do you know how could I use the program to close this gap, or if there are any virtual operations for that.

 

Thank you very much in advance!
