Solid stent made of silicone and designed to bronchial occlusion in the treatment of various ailments broncho-pleuro-pulmonary, as bronchopleural fistula and persistent air loss (in cases of pneumothorax), which can not be treated with conventional surgery.
This solid stent is radiopaque.
the Stening® Solid Stent, MS10, is supplied in a container that has two units of 5mm of greater diameter, four of 6mm, two of 7mm and two of 8mm.
Suture failure in a stump after lobar pulmonary resection.
Occluded bronchial treatment.
How to use :
The Stening® Solid Stent is implanted with the help of a rigid bronchoscope and it will be required general anaesthesia.
Once the location spot has been determined and its size, which is established by comparison with the known diameter of the endoscopic instruments that are being used, one or a few solid stents with the right measures, that exceed the fistulous hole diameter or the bronchus diameter, will be chosen. This is done in order to adjust the stent to the bronchus or stump where it will be hosted.
The device has a flat appendage at its posterior end from where it will be taken with a rigid alligator forceps.
Then the stent-forceps assembly is introduced through the bronchoscope to lead it to its final destination in the bronchus or fistula that is desired to be occluded by introducing the Stening Solid Stent into the hole.
All the procedure described is carried out under direct vision using the optics for bronchoscopy.
The removal is done effecting inverse manoeuvres.
Due to its radiopaque properties, it can be identified in the radiographies.
