  • Product Description
    Boston Scientific Sentinol Self-Expanding Nitinol Biliary Stent System with Over-the-Wire Delivery System. Catalog No. 38948-8607. Sterile. Made in USA 5905 Nathan Lane, Plymouth, MN 55442, USA. The Sentinol Nitinol Stent System is comprised of two components: the implantable endoprosthesis and the stent delivery system. The stent is a laser cut self-expanding stent composed of a nickel titanium alloy(nitinol). The stent is constrained within a 6F delivery system. The delivery system is of coaxial design with an exterior shaft to protect and constrain the stent prior to deployment. An inner shaft, with two radiopaque markers, aids in the placement of the stent. The delivery system is compatible with 0.035 in. (0.89mm) guidewires. When ready to be implanted, the stent is deployed by retracting the exterior shaft of the delivery system. As the stent is exposed to body temperature it expands to appose the duct wall.
