aixstent® OEC

Cardia Umbrella Stent

Esophageal strictures close to the cardia require an adapted stent design. The distal end of the Cardia Umbrella Stent OEC is shaped like an umbrella, significantly reducing the risk of irritation of the gastric mucosa. The complete cover at the distal end avoids tumor ingrowth.

The Cardia Umbrella Stents are preloaded on a reloadable delivery system. For precise positioning, the stent can be repositioned into the delivery system during the procedure. Strategically placed radiopaque tantalum markers make the stents clearly visible in fluoroscopy.

Other sizes and types are available as custom made stents. See form “Request for Customization”.
