Stening® Occluded “Y” Stent
It consists on a tracheo-carino-bronchial “Y” stent that has one of its bronchial branches completely occluded on its origin.
Thereby, the stent satisfies a special function, allowing the ventilation from the healthy lung on patients with a postsurgical bronchopleural fistula or from other aetiologies and that require mechanical respiratory assistance.
The occluded branch impedes the air flow loss through the vast communication with the pleural cavity.
- A right or left bronchopleural fistula, from any aetiology, with or without the MRA (Mechanical Respiratory Assistance) need
- A bronchopleural fistula accompanied by empyema on patients with a tube drainage or buleau
