This article was originally published in Clinica
Cordis has launched in the US its balloon-expandable Palmaz Blue transhepatic biliary cobalt chromium stent for opening blocked bile ducts. Featuring L605, a cobalt alloy enhanced with tungsten, the device is stronger than stainless steel stents and uses less metal, claims the company. As well as being stronger, the stent has a low profile and offers improvements in radiopacity, flexibility and deliverability, the firm added. Cordis, a Johnson & Johnson company, said that each year in the US, over 30,000 people are affected by life-threatening bile duct blockages.f
