Interventional Radiology Kaffes™ Stent
Category: Interventional Biliary Stents
To treat 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
Covered part can prevent bile leak through transluminal track between stomach and left hepatic duct.
Uncovered part can prevent migration and cholangitis without obstructing side branches of hepatic ducts.
Flared end is located out of the stomach wall preventing migration into hepatic duct
