It is a tracheal stent of easy implant and removal. It is especially suitable for the benign stenosis treatment.
With a 14, 15 and 16 mm diameter on its edges and a 12, 13 and 14 mm diameter respectively on its central portion, constitutes a profile that increase the difficulty of its spontaneous displacement after being introduced.
The stents for tracheal stenosis (SET) have a 5 mm longer version: “L” (see table of dimensions).
These variants are how Stening® responds to the needs on treatment for special clinical situations.
Stening® provides detailed instructions for each device, including insertion and removal techniques, precautions and postoperative cares.
Simple tracheal stenosis
Complex and long tracheal stenosis
Stenosis combined with malacia or compression
After laser resection, cryotherapy or electrocautery, to maintain the airway opened
Post infectious stenosis (endobronchial tuberculosis, histoplasmosis mediastinal fibrosis, herpes virus, diphtheria)
Post anastomosis surgical tracheal stenosis
Architecture modifications, deformity, bending (senile trachea)
Medical grade silicone
Bevelled edges to prevent granulomas
Spur system to prevent migration
Surface of maximum softness to avoid adherence of secretions
Transparent or Radiopaque
Maintain the moisture of secretions, whenever they appear, by taking nebulisations frequently with a warm isotonic saline solution.
Perform a periodic check-up following your doctor’s advice.
Take care of your oral hygiene and treat cavities.
