Introducing the EndoMAXX Esophageal Stent
The EndoMAXX features a one-handed delivery system, facilitating accurate stent placement. Laser cut from a single Nitinol tube, which results in virtually no foreshortening or elongation, as is commonly found with woven stents.
Fully Covered Esophageal Stent Placement for Malignant Dysphagia – EndoMAXX Esophageal Stent
Presentation: 56-year-old man presented with a history of dysphagia and weight loss. A contrast-enhanced CT scan showed a large distal esophageal mass, consistent with a primary esophageal cancer.
EndoMAXX Deployment Across the Gastroesophageal Junction [In-Service]
A case review with Dr. Adler for a patient requiring an esophageal stent across the gastroesophageal junction. Dr. Adler also discusses considerations for esophageal stent placement across the GEJ.
- The laser cut stent design provides for virtually no foreshortening nor elongation of the stent resulting in:
- Increased deployment accuracy with no need to compensate for stent foreshortening
- Reduction in stent movement “inch worming” as a result of the stent elongating and shortening from changes in compression force
- The unique and proprietary design of the EndoMAXX allows for variations in radial force throughout the stent which reduces tissue irritation and damage while maintaining luminal patency
- Both a proximal and distal metal suture provides a means for repositioning of the stent post placement and provide increased suture integrity.
- Redesigned anti-migration struts provide increased mucosal wall contact and friction, while remaining fully covered.
- Silicone covering helps decrease tissue ingrowth and stent degredation.
