• Anastomic strictures after liver transplantation


  • Characteristic waist at mid-portion of the stent : Waist shape of the stent allows strong radial force and preventing migration


  • Short length of stent : Using a short stent across the stricture prevents to impart pressure over a large area of normal duct by reducing the potential risk of necrosis and fibrosis


  • Long platinum radio-paqued retrieval string : The long platinum string helps easy removal from the high up location of CBD


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