Niti-S™ LCD™ Biliary Stent

Category: Biliary Stents

Gastroenterology Niti-S™ Self-Expandable Metal LCD™ Biliary Stent

A versatile stent designed for hilar obstructions. The large cell diameter allows placement of stent within a stent in the lower bile duct to reduce excessive pressure on the healthy areas, while gentle radial force opens strictures in the upper bile duct branches. Available in percutaneous or through the scope(TTS) applications.

Product Description

Unfixed large cell (each cell size: 6mm) with weaving construction
  • Easy positioning of the second stent: The large cell size design of LCD™ enables to position the second stent conveniently
  • Simple and easy re-intervention: Re-intervention through the large cell is easily performed, even after bilateral stent placement
  • Low axial force and optimal radial force: Improve patients comfort and adapt to hilar biliary anatomy


Radiopaque Markers:3 (three) at both ends and 2 (two) in the middle


Indication: For hilar obstructions
