NOVATECH® GSS™ — X-ray visibility plus transparency

X-ray visibility plus transparency

Studs on the outer surface of the stents are filled with gold and barium sulphate. This combines a good positional assessment of the stent during imaging with an optimised endoscopic view of the tissue.

NOVATECH® GSS™ — Anti-migration studs

Anti-migration studs

The studs minimise the risk of migration by securing the stent between the cartilage rings of the tracheobronchial tree.

NOVATECH® GSS™ — Easy placement

Easy placement

GSS™ can be easily loaded into the TONN™ NOVATECH® Stent Applicator. In this way they are prepared for release at their target by the rigid bronchoscope. Do you need any information about the instrumentation? Contact us! +33 442 98 15 60

NOVATECH® GSS™ — Anti-adherent surface

Anti-adherent surface

A special silicone-based surface treatment provides an anti-adherent surface that reduces any risk of obstruction.

NOVATECH® GSS™ — Safe removal

Safe removal

GSS™ can be retrieved and removed using forceps during a rigid bronchoscopy.

NOVATECH® GSS™ — Bevelled ends

Bevelled ends

To facilitate the transport of secretions, the ends of the GSS™ are atraumatically bevelled.

In addition to the features described on this page, one of the greatest challenges in the development and manufacture of silicone stents is creating the right balance between flexibility and radial force. Our decades long experience and collaboration with the world's leading interventional pulmonologists has resulted in high-quality, reliable stents, entirely for the benefit of your patients.
