Gastrointestinal Stents Market Industry Global Market Size, Analysis, Trends, Growth and 2017-2025 Forecast


Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/04/2017 -- Gastrointestinal stents are used to open up bile ducts, esophagus, small bowel, and colon that may be diseased or infected. These stents are used in different diseases such as colorectal cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, and other gastrointestinal diseases. Stents can hold open strictured areas in the esophagus, the biliary tree, the colon and the gastroduodenal region. Different types of gastrointestinal stents are used based on disease condition. Bile duct stents are placed in patients with cholangiocarcinoma and their function is to allow normal drainage from the pancreas, gallbladder, and liver into the small bowel. Esophageal stents are used to open a patient's esophagus and assist in swallowing food and liquid content. Duodenal stents are used to sustain content flow through a patient's small bowel, near the top of the small intestine, when that area is blocked by cancerous tumors. Colonic stents are used to open points of stricture or narrowing in a patient's colon when colorectal disease or cancer may be making it difficult for the patient to digest and to pass stool properly. Advanced endoscopy can be used to insert stents into various sites of the gastrointestinal tract. The basic principles of stent insertion involve initial placement of a guidewire across the region to be stented, using endoscopic vision and often fluoroscopic guidance too. Gastrointestinal stents are also placed non-endoscopically by radiologists.
