The Allium BUS stent for bulbar strictures is designed specifically for the treatment of recurrent strictures along the bulbar urethra. This new generation of bulbar stents is fully covered, self-expandable, and large in caliber to match the contours of the bulbar urethral lumen. The main body acts as a mold to allow forming a large urethral lumen, and the dynamic sphincteric segment prevents sphincteric dysfunction that may cause incontinence. The Allium Bulbar Stent is intended for a long-term use of up to 3 years and is designed to be removed easily and safely even after this long indwelling period.
- The Allium Bulbar stent (BUS) can be used at any stage when treating Bulbar Urethra Strictures:
- Replacing repeated dilations within short periods
- Replacing repeated Urethrotomies
- Prior to Bulbar Plasty
- Following failure of Bulbar Plasty/Flap surgery
Studies have shown that after an optical urethrotomy, temporary stents left indwelling for a period of 12-14 months can prevent recurrent stenosis in up to 70% of patients. The BUS stent can be used utilizing the above technique, in order to achieve these outcomes. Since the BUS stent is not changing the anatomy it is therefore a reversible non anatomy changing, minimally invasive alternative to more invasive procedures.
