For a perfect hold in the cardia area.
The Cardia-Umbrella-Stent by MICRO-TECH is a specially designed stent perfectly tailored to this challenging anatomical diagnosis of the cardia. Its unique design gives the 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.
