|Category: Biliary Stents|
A versatile stent designed for hilar obstructions. The large cell diameter allows placement of stent within a stent in the lower bile duct to reduce excessive pressure on the healthy areas, while gentle radial force opens strictures in the upper bile duct branches. Available in percutaneous or through the scope(TTS) applications.
Unfixed large cell (each cell size: 6mm) with weaving construction
- Easy positioning of the second stent: The large cell size design of LCD™ enables to position the second stent conveniently
- Simple and easy re-intervention: Re-intervention through the large cell is easily performed, even after bilateral stent placement
- Low axial force and optimal radial force: Improve patients comfort and adapt to hilar biliary anatomy
Radiopaque Markers:3 (three) at both ends and 2 (two) in the middle
For hilar obstructions
Details / Features
- Covered part can prevent bile leak through transluminal track between stomach and left hepatic duct.
- Uncovered part can prevent migration and cholangitis without obstructing side branches of hepatic ducts.
- Flared end is located out of the stomach wall preventing migration into hepatic duct
