Interventional Radiolgy Bumpy™ Biliary Stent
|Category: Interventional Biliary Stents|
Irregular cell sizes allow for segmental radial force so side branches of pancreatic duct are not compressed, thus reducing stent related pancreatitis or pancreatic sepsis. Both flared ends reduce risk of migration. Fully PTFE body cover and silicone flare cover along with a removal string at proximal end allow for easy removal. Radiopaque markers: 3 (three) each end & 2 (two) in the middle.
Benign biliary strictures
Details / Features
- Unfixed cell structure enables stent to conform to tortuous anatomy
- PTFE membrane prevents the risk of tissue ingrowth
- Outer wire mesh reduces the risk of migration
- Minimum foreshortening for accurate placement
Indication: for malignant biliary strictures.
Radiopaque markers: 4 (four) at each end
