The OTW (over-the-wire) colonic and rectal stents of MICRO-TECH have a particularly high positional stability. In the OTW colonic stents this is achieved via a square-edged transition, situated near each end of the stent. This virtually anchors the stent inside the lumen and adapts it optimally to the anatomy and peristalsis of the colon. In contrast, rectal stents are less stimulating and hence more “ball-shaped”. This ensures the patient experiences less irritations in this sensitive area, thus decisively increasing quality of life. The partially sheathed OTW colonic and rectal stents produce very high radial forces. Therefore, they should be placed into straight segments of the colon, and not into the bent segments, such as the right and left flexure of the colon.

- Anatomical design
- Excellent positional stability
- High radial force
- Resistant and elastic covering
- High radiopacity

SUCCESSFUL IN PRACTICAL USE
The stents are convincing in practice by their good opening performance and the special distinctive end shape of this type with which the stents can be firmly anchored in the semilunar folds of the colon. In order to facilitate orientation during deployment, the stents have additional X-ray markings at all significant points.

POSITIONALLY STABLE IN ALL SIZES
Colonic and rectal stents are available in lengths of 80 mm and 100 mm. Stents for patients who have undergone anastomosis have a length of 60 mm. You can choose between non-covered, partially covered and end-to-end covered versions.
