UNITY-B
Biodegradable Balloon Expandable Stent System

added benefit of biodegradation
to minimize complications

The UNITY-B Biodegradable Balloon Expandable Stent System is designed to replace self-expanding metallic stents (SEMS) with the added benefit of biodegradation to minimize the complications associated with metal stents such as perforation, stent-in-growth, stent-over-growth and the inability to remove metal stents.

UNITY-B is a hybrid biodegradable stent that:

Functions like a metallic stent
Can be used in non conforming strictures
Can be over-dilated without fracturing
Has minimal recoil and foreshortening
Does not require in advance preparation of the stricture
Can be placed with the same traditional approach used for a normal metallic or DES stent
Can be easily produced in a wide range of sizes

*Unity vs Main Competitor

Enhanced features:

Initial surface degradation allows for bile flow and “self-cleaning” of biofilm
Minimizes stent-in-growth
Minimizes stent-over-growth
Minimizes stent perforation (no COF)
The issue of stent removal is eliminated
