Stening® Cone MD Stent
This stent is especially destined to impede or reduce the oesophageal fluids path to the airway. These fluids pass through the fistulas and communications among the airway and the digestive system. It is especially frequent when the main left bronchus is invaded by an oesophageal carcinoma.
Its distal margin is bevelled at an angle of 45º and the proximal one engrosses into a cone shape, in order to fix in the carinal side and the tracheal wall.
The Stening Cone Stent lacks of anchors. Its smooth walls permit a complete touch with the bronchial mucosa in all its extension.
It is also useful in other affections that take place in the large bronchi, such as scarring stenosis, and those secondary to termino-terminal anastomosis, in bronchial reimplantations and bronchial complications of lung transplantation.
It can be used to replace a straight stent, after the treatment of large bronchi occlusions due to bronchogenic carcinoma or bronchial locations of other carcinomas.
- Abnormal bronchoesophageal communication due to carcinoma of the esophagus.
- Bronchoesophageal post-traumatic communication.
- Bronchial stenosis.
- After the resection of the carcinoma in a source bronchus.
- Traumatic bronchial rupture.
