and Delivery System
The AXIOS™ Stent and Delivery System is the world’s first stent designed for endoscopic ultrasound-guided transluminal drainage of symptomatic pancreatic pseudocysts.
The AXIOS Stent and Delivery System (“AXIOS System”) enables physicians to treat patients endoscopically instead of surgically. The AXIOS Stent creates an anastomotic conduit between two lumens, enabling blockages and strictures to be bypassed and large fluid collections to be drained.
AXIOS Stent and Delivery System
The AXIOS System creates a translumenal conduit between the wall of the gastrointestinal tract (e.g. stomach or duodenum) and a neighboring fluid-filled cavity (e.g. pancreatic pseudocyst). It consists of two components: the catheter-based delivery system and an implantable stent.
- Two large flanges to hold the tissue layers together
- A large diameter for effective drainage
- Fully covered to prevent leakage and to enable removal
