In thirty seconds, you can create an entire patient record with Stent Tracker that can help:

Reduce Complications for Patients

  • Forgotten, encrusted stents result in increased risk of infection, obstruction, and retention and require an average of 2 additional surgical procedures2,3
  • Using a digital tracking tool dramatically reduces forgotten stents from 13 out of 100 to 1 in 1001

Reduce Litigation for Retained Stents

  • 16% of the New York Endourology lawsuits were for retained stents4
  • 5% of UK Urology lawsuits that found for the plaintiff were for retained stents5

Improve Tracking Efficiency and Accuracy

  • Create a stent case record with extraction due date in seconds
  • Scan a Boston Scientific stent bar code to automatically populate stent details
