Dilatation-assisted stone extraction
Dilatate with control to remove difficult common bile duct stones.
A catherer designed for consistent performance in dilatation-assisted stone extraction
ESGE recommends performing a limited sphincterotomy combined with endoscopic papillary large-balloon dilation as the ﬁrst-line approach to remove diﬃcult common bile duct stones.1
The CRE™ RX Biliary Balloon Dilatation Catheter is indicated for use in adults for the endoscopic dilatation of the sphincter of Oddi with or without prior sphincterotomy and is available in lengths of 3cm and 5.5cm, with diameters ranging from 6–20mm. Each balloon can be inﬂated to three distinct and progressively larger diameters, providing ﬂexibility in selecting the most anatomically appropriate approach for diﬃcult stone extraction.
By using the catheter’s injection port, a contrast medium may also be administered for the ﬂuoroscopic visualization of the bile ducts. Radiopaque markers facilitate positioning under ﬂuoroscopy.
