Lumen-apposing metal stenting
ERCP has a multitude of applications in diagnosing and treating conditions of the HPB tract. However, on the rare occasions when it is unsuccessful, the patient’s needs still have to be met.
The Hot AXIOS™ Stent and Electrocautery-Enhanced Delivery System provides you with an opportunity to perform a rescue procedure and reach your target HPB site.
With this stent, you can create a secure, translumenal conduit between the gastrointestinal tract and a neighboring ﬂuid-ﬁlled cavity to facilitate drainage or create a bypass around a stricture or blockage.
