NOVATECH® GSS™ TF

Thin Tracheal Stents

Endotracheal GSS™ TF stents have a wall thickness of only 1 mm, which makes larger stent-diameters possible.

Enhanced respiratory flow
The larger inner diameter of a GSS™ TF stent significantly enhances respiratory flow. For a standard tracheal stent of 50 mm in length and 16 mm in external diameter, the inner diameter increases by approx. 6 %, resulting in an increase of the luminal volume of 16 %.

Improved mucociliary clearance
The thinner walls of GSS™ TF stents facilitate the internal movements of the trachea (respiration, ease of the peristaltic movements of the esophagus). This dynamic stent concept allows better mucociliary clearance (depending on mucus viscosity).
