The Biodegradable stent (BD) is a unique device designed to treat benign strictures in the mid & lower oesophagus and helps to facilitate long term stricture remodelling. BD helps to eliminate complications commonly associated with migration and re-intervention in benign disease.
Indicated for peptic, caustic & anastomotic benign strictures in the mid and lower oesophagus, BD is designed to minimise the need for re-interventions and streamline the patient pathway. The BD Biodegradable Stent provides a cost effective, patient focussed alternative to high-frequency oesophageal dilatation.
“Using the BD stent ‘would appear to offer patients with benign disease greater than 50% possibility of long-term symptom resolution’¹”
Degradation process involves partial bioabsorbption of PDS material and natural passage through the digestive tract.
Easy-to-use distal release pull-back delivery system with detachable splittable olive.
