Indication

Hilar obstruction

Features

  • Unfixed large cell (each cell size : 6mm) with a weaving construction

– Easy positioning of the second stent : The large cell size design of the LCD enables convenient positioning of the second stent

– Simple and easy reintervention : Reintervention through the large cell is easily performed, even after bilateral stent placement

– Low axial force and optimal radial force : Improves the patients comfort and adapts to the hilar biliary anatomy

  • Radiopaque marker : 3(three) at both ends & 2(two) in the middle
