SX-ELLA Stent Esophageal Degradable BD - BD STENT

  • Biodegradation
  • Excellent flexibility
  • Radiopaque markers
  • Splittable olive tip

Basic Description

Stent system for treatment of benign esophageal strictures.
BD - after deployment
4 weeks


BD Stent is intended for patients aged 18 and older and indicated for management of refractory benign esophageal stenoses:

  • refractory esophageal stenoses (peptic, caustic, or anastomotic) in which the standard therapy with repeated dilation failed.


  • Inability to pass the 9.4 mm (28 F) delivery system through the stricture
  • Benign stricture in the upper part of esophagus too close to the cricopharyngeal muscle
  • Patients with benign strictures due to previously performed laryngectomy

MRI Safety Information

  • The product is MRI Conditional, compatible with 1.5-Tesla and 3-Tesla magnetic field.

Features / Benefits

  • Stent integrity and radial force of the stent is maintained for 6 – 8 weeks following implantation / Extended period of dilation compared to conventional methods
  • Stent disintegration occurs 11 - 12 weeks following implantation / No need for removal
  • Dual “flared ends” stent design / Reduced migration rates
  • Radiopaque markers at both stent ends / Accurate stent positioning

Additional Description

The stent is delivered sterile and packed separately from the delivery system. It is manually loaded into the delivery system immediately prior to implantation.
The use of a 0.035” (0.89 mm) / 220 cm stiff guide wire is recommended.


The pH influences the process of degradation of the stent. Low pH (e.g. due to GE reflux) accelerates the degradation.
