Bard® Valeo® Balloon Expandable Biliary Stent
Indications: The Valeo® Biliary Stent is intended for use in the
palliation of malignant strictures (neoplasms) in the biliary tree.
Contraindications: Stenting of a perforated duct where leakage
from the duct could be exacerbated by the prosthesis. • Patients with
bleeding disorders. • Severe ascites.
Warnings: The safety and effectiveness of this device for
use in the vascular system have not been established. • This
device is designed and intended for ONE TIME USE ONLY. DO NOT
RESTERILIZE AND/OR REUSE. • Use the device prior to the USE
BY date specified on the package. • Do not use the device if the
package is open or damaged. • Should unusual resistance be felt
at any time during the insertion process, do not force passage. • If
resistance occurs during movement through the sheath, the stent/
catheter should be withdrawn carefully. • During implantation, if
resistance occurs after the stent has exited the sheath or if the stent
cannot be delivered to the target location, attempts to retract the
stent/catheter into the sheath may result in stent dislodgement. The
stent/catheter/sheath should be removed as a single unit.
