Description

From Which Medical Device

This biodegradable stent is designed for use in the treatment of esophageal, tracheal, biliary and intestinal illness. According to the manufacturer, the device has been successfully applied in the colon to treat Crohn disease.

They say that stent integrity and the radial force of the stent is maintained for 6 – 8 weeks following implantation and there is an extended period of dilation in comparison to conventional methods. Stent disintegration occurs 11 - 12 weeks following implantation and there is no need for removal. Flared ends reduced migration rates and radiopaque markers at both stent ends assist with accurate positioning.
