Date:10/21/2010

while navigating tight strictures in the bile ducts, facilitating stent placement and removal.  The thin wall and increased inner diameter of the stent may provide extended patency of the duct, which could improve treatment outcomes."

"Boston Scientific remains committed to delivering innovation and leadership in endoscopic stent technology," said Michael Phalen, Senior Vice President, and President of Boston Scientific's Endoscopy Division.  "The Advanix Biliary Stent System represents the latest advances in plastic stent design, enabling physicians to more efficiently and effectively treat blockages in the bile duct.  In addition, it strengthens our broad stent portfolio and provides another solution for the ERCP suite."

Benign strictures in the bile duct are typically caused by prior surgical procedures, biliary stones or chronic pancreatitis, a disease in which digestive enzymes begin to break down and attack the pancreas.  Chronic pancreatitis is extremely painful and in severe cases, can lead to infection, shock and respiratory failure.  The most common cause of malignant biliary obstruction is pancreatic cancer, which is rarely diagnosed in the early stages, and is the second most common cause of death among gastrointestinal cancers.  Other causes of malignant biliary obstructions include bile duct, liver and gallbladder cancer.  

The Advanix Biliary Stent and NaviFlex RX Delivery System are available in a variety of sizes and shapes to accommodate both malignant and benign biliary strictures, distinct patient anatomies and physician preferences.
