Rutter Suprastomal Stent
The Rutter Suprastomal Stent is a silicone stent system designed to provide support in the stenotic larynx and trachea.
The stent is supplied as three components - the main body of the silicone stent, a fenestrated plug (allows for limited airflow through the stent and for vocalization in some patients) and a non-fenestrated plug (for use in patients with a high risk of aspiration).
The body of the stent has two tapered ends. The tapered end with the smaller diameter hole is designed to lie distally at the tracheostoma and may even slightly overlap the tracheostoma. The proximal end of the stent will accomodate the supplied plugs. The proximal end can be trimmed for custom stent length. The stent system is supplied sterile for single patient use.
For the prevention and treatment of laryngeal and tracheal stenosis
- Implant-grade silicone material minimizes the tendency of granulation tissue formation
- Non-adherent smooth surface
- Radiopaque material
- Length can be trimmed to required size
