Whereas OTW systems can be placed over-the-wire, TTS (through-the-Scope)colonic stents can be delivered though the working channel of the colonoscope. This way, application time is reduced dramatically. Due to the visible endoscopic control during placement stent deployment takes place in an even more controlled fashion. In comparison with OTW colonic and rectal stents, TTS applications are especially flexible and better suited for the curved segments of the colon, e.g. the right and left colonic flexures.
COLONIC STENTS TTS
SECURE PLACEMENT UNDER VISUAL ENDOSCOPIC CONTROL
- Nitinol wire mesh with atraumatic ends
- Flexible and positionally stable
- 10 Radiopaque markers for enhanced visibility under X-ray
- Extraction threads for removal and repositioning
- Guide wire passable up to 0.035 inches
ALWAYS IN IDEAL SHAPE
As a standard among TTS colonic stents, you can choose from four different lengths: 60, 80, 100, and 120 mm for stents without covering. In all other versions the stent end working diameter amounts to 25 mm and to 30 mm. The introducer system for MICRO-TECH TTS colonic stents has a diameter of 10 fr. (= 3.3 mm). It therefore fits to all working channels having a diameter of at least 3.6 mm.
