Ureteral Polyurethane Stents
DexStent-PU permanent implantable Polyurethane ureteral stents are available in a variety of sizes with special emphasis on extra small diameters of 2.4/ 2.5 French for use in cats.
The stents are offered in either a soft or a slightly stiffer, flexible material configuration but both versions become approx. 20% softer when reaching body temperature for enhanced patient comfort. Both materials feature reduced bacterial adherence and reduced incrustation tendency and are excellent for long-term application.
Perforation: The atraumatic eyes are placed on the inside of the pigtail rings and throughout the stent length to assure proper drainage.
All stents come in a variety of lengths and a maneuverable stent version is also available for sizes 4.8 French and larger. A metal reinforced cancer stent version is available from 6Fr and above.
The stents are graduated, overall radiopaque for acurate positioning and have excellent visibility during Fluoroscopy. Each set contains the stent, dilator-pusher and Teflon coated guide wire if not stated otherwise on the individual product description. We highly recommend to use Nitinol guidewires (DexWire) for the 2.4/2.5 Fr versions.
Dextronix also provides a special tumor stent which is available from size 6 French. This version contains a small metal wire mesh to reinforce the inside where the tube faces the malignant area. The non reinforced pigtail coils keep their flexibility.
