Indication

  • Leak or fistula after sleeve gastrectomy

Features

  • Specially designed soft and flexible body : Adapts to the acute anatomy after sleeve gastrectomy

– The diversion of the fistula by the placement of a covered stent is necessary in most cases and it reestablishes the continuity of the digestive tract and promotes healing of the fistula. Also, allows the early reintroduction of food, improving patient nutritional states and therefore favoring recovery

 

  • Large diameter and long length of the stent : Prevent migration

– Proximal part of the stent is located near the middle of the esophagus, and distal part of the stent is located in the gastric antral or in the first duodenal portion

 

  • Fully silicone covering allows easy removal

 

  • Radiopaque marker : 4(four) at both ends & 2(two) in the middle
