- Benign biliary strictures
- Irregular cell sizes with different magnitudes of segmental radial force with flared ends
– Irregular cell sizes of segmental radial force does not completely compress the side branches for preventing stent related pancreatic sepsis or pancreatitis
– Anti-migration : Both flared ends prevent the risk of migration
- Easy removal : Fully PTFE (body portion) and silicone (both flared ends) covered design along with removal string at the proximal end of the stent lead to easy removal
- Radiopaque marker : 3(three) at both ends & 2(two) in the middle
