  • Short length of stent: Using a short stent across the stricture prevents to impart pressure over a large area of normal duct by reducing the potential risk of necrosis and fibrosis
  • Long platinum radio-paqued retrieval string: The long platinum string helps easy removal from the high up location of CBD
  • Radiopaque Marker: Three (3) at both ends and two (2) in the middle
