For a perfect hold in the cardia area.
Treatment of the cardia is mainly associated with two complications. Firstly, the stent has an increased tendency to migrate at this point. Secondly, a stent end may protrude far into the stomach and cause pressure necrosis. The Cardia-Umbrella-Stent by MICRO TECH is a specially designed stent perfectly tailored to this challenging anatomical diagnosis.
Its unique design gives the Cardia-Umbrella-Stent extremely high positional stability and prevents its migration in both the gastric and oral directions. The special feature here is the fact that the lower oesophageal sphincter lies between the bulbous section and the distal end of the stent which is shaped like an opened umbrella. Furthermore, the stent does not protrude into the stomach as a result of this umbrella-shaped design, ending directly behind the oesophageal gastric junction. The risk of pressure necrosis is thus markedly reduced and any potential patient discomfort is decreased.
