Danis Stent

Acute oesophageal variceal bleeds continue to be some of the most difficult conditions to treat, with significant risks of exsanguination and patient mortality.

With conventional treatment originating in the 1930's and associated with high SAEs, the NICE approved Danis stent represents a step change in the management of refractory variceal bleeds.

    The Ella Danis stent provides a fast, safe and effective treatment option for patients with refractory oesophageal variceal bleeds.

    Supported by NICE guidance and designed to tamponade oesophageal varices whilst maintaining normal dietary intake and minimising the need for high - dependency observation, Danis can stabilise your patient allowing time to plan future treatment options and improve patient outcomes.
