Reliable bypassing of stenoses in the area of the digestive or respiratory tract places high expectations on a stent. As one of the leading international manufacturers, MICRO-TECH more than meets such requirements with its innovative solutions. Rely on the utmost in quality and optimum positional stability.
Every stent from the MICRO-TECH range is manufactured using high quality Nitinol wire. The “thermal memory effect” of Nitinol causes the released stent to unfold into its predetermined dimensions at body temperature. It therefore adapts to the anatomy and achieves the desired dilation of the stenosis in an optimum manner.
SIMPLE TO RELEASE
In order to make release of the stent as easy as possible, the stents are preloaded on an introducer. The system can be manipulated intuitively and effortlessly. With some stents you even have the opportunity to correct the positioning of the stent during implantation.
MANUFACTURED FROM ONE WIRE
MICRO-TECH Nitinol stents are – with the exception of the segmented stent – braided from one single wire. Therefore the risk of a stent fracture at connecting loops is almost impossible.
PRECISE POSITIONING VIA X-RAY MARKINGS
In order to allow you to position the stent precisely, additional X-ray markings are provided on the introducer and the stent, which can be easily distinguished under X-ray fluoroscopy. The excellent overall radiopacity of the stents further reinforces this effect.
SPECIAL SIZES AND PATIENT-MADE STENTS
MICRO-TECH not only supplies stents in all common standard sizes but also stents for special indications such as our “Segmented Stent” or stents with a real anti-reflux valve.
In addition, we manufacture stents that exactly meet the individual anatomical characteristics of your patient. You will receive these “Custom Made Stents” conveniently via an easy to fill in form. Custom made stents are usually available within 10 days.
