Challenges to achieving luminal patency
Achieving adequate luminal patency plays a huge role in the success of a procedure, as failure to do so can result in complications and treatment delays.
A sub-optimal course of events can aﬀect patients’ treatment experience and quality of life. Insuﬃcient drainage can also reduce the survival of those with unresectable malignancies.
The availability of reliable, eﬀective, easy-to-deploy dilation and stenting technologies is therefore crucial to optimizing outcomes in patients with malignant strictures in the hepato-pancreato-biliary (HPB) tract.
Enabling eﬃcient and eﬀective treatment procedures
At Boston Scientiﬁc, we work tirelessly to deliver innovative solutions that help you oﬀer the best possible treatment experience to your patients.
Our HurricaneTM RX Biliary Balloon Dilatation Catheter is developed for accurate positioning and enables excellent stricture passage
Excellent stricture passage
The HurricaneTM RX Biliary Balloon Catheter is a double-lumen catheter for endoscopic dilation of strictures of the biliary tree.
It has been designed to reduce resistance and increase pushability when crossing strictures thanks to a low-proﬁle balloon shaft and tip, and a stainless steel stiﬀening stylet. The RX catheter design also allows guidewire locking to secure access.
Developed for accurate positioning
Hurricane™ RX Balloon oﬀers optimal visualization with two radiopaque markers aiding in balloon positioning. Contrast may be injected with guidewire in place.
Complemented by a range of balloon sizes
The available options for balloon diameters and lengths facilitate the selection of an appropriately sized balloon for your patient's anatomy and stricture size. In addition, our balloons are designed to oﬀer stability during stricture dilation.

Available in a wide range of sizes, the Hurricane™ RX Biliary Balloon Dilatation Catheter provides pushability, a low proﬁle 4Fr tip to reduce the risk of tissue trauma, and radiopaque markers for accurate positioning.
Eﬀectively manage biliary strictures and meet the needs of all stenting procedures with the WallFlexTM Biliary RX stent
Eﬀective management of biliary strictures with biliary metal stents
Endoscopically placed stents have become the standard of care for biliary drainage with the aim of improving hepatic function, relieving jaundice, and reducing the adverse eﬀects of biliary strictures.
They can improve quality of life and allow for palliative chemotherapy in patients with malignancies.
Multiple factors play a role in the selection of a metal stent.
- Migration resistance
- Tissue in-growth prevention for the fully-covered version
- Radial force
- Fluoroscopic visualization
- Easy delivery
- Precise placement
- Conformability to local anatomy
- Accurate placement to reduce migration
- Optimal deployment of the stent
- Prolonged patency
- Low migration rates
- Removability up to 12 months*
- Post-op visibility

Ablate malignant or benign tissue with precision with the HabibTM EndoHPB Catheter
An award-winning innovation
The Habib™ EndoHPB Catheter is an Edison Award-winning radio frequency (RF) ablation catheter. It is the ﬁrst RF catheter in Europe indicated for endoscopic biliary drainage or decompression prior to stent placement, or afterwards to clear an occluded stent.
It may improve luminal patency for both metal and plastic stents.1-4 Pre and post RF ablation with the Habib™ EndoHPB Catheter can be assessed under direct visualization with the SpyGlass™ DS System, enabling precision in tissue ablation.
