LCD™ Stent

Category: Interventional Biliary Stent  

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


Hilar obstruction

Details / Features

  • Unfixed large cell (each cell size : 6mm) with weaving construction
  • Easy positioning of the second stent : The large cell size design of LCDTM enables to position the second stent conveniently
  • Simple and easy reintervention : Reintervention 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 marker: 3 (three) at both ends and 2 (two) in the middle
