Bypass of the cardia with a stent results in gastrooesophageal reflux. In order to prevent the latter and thereby minimize the risk of bronchopulmonary aspirations, the Cardia-Valve-Stent from MICRO-TECH is equipped with a unique valve system. The revolutionary aspect of the valve is its 2-way function which imitates the human protective mechanism perfectly. On the one hand, it allows food and liquids to enter the stomach unimpeded and reliably prevents reflux. On the other, it opens in the oral direction in case of excessive pressure. The patient can therefore obtain relief by vomiting in spite of the valve. The valve is particularly flexible and at the same time highly resistant to gastric acid.
THE EFFECTIVE SOLUTION AGAINST REFLUX
- Innovative 2-way valve system
- Nitinol mesh with atraumatic ends
- Excellent positional stability
- High radial force
- Resistant and elastic covering
- High radiopacity
- Extraction threads for removal and repositioning
- Guide wire-compatible up to 0.035 inches
SUCCESSFUL IN PRACTICAL USE
Up to now, use of anti-reflux stents, which are intended to prevent unimpeded reflux, have been controversial. With the Cardia-Valve-Stent, MICRO-TECH is offering a solution that almost perfectly imitates the natural closing mechanism. The 2-way valve, which is flat at the distal end of the stent endeavours to achieve the functional opening and closing of the sphincter.

INNOVATIVE STENT DESIGN
In addition to the unique 2-way valve system, the Cardia-Valve-Stent possesses a series of features that makes it very safe. The reliable covering for instance, which is available in different versions: partially covered, without covering at the proximal end and completely covered.
