RPS-Round Posterior Stent

Allium Large Caliber, fully covered, easy removable Bladder neck Urethral stent.

 

The use of Allium’s Round Posterior Stent (RPS) System is indicated for the management of Bladder Outlet Obstruction (BOO) in adult males

It is intended for use in the following obstructions to provide temporary relief developing following:

  • Radical Prostatectomies (Anastomotic strictures)
  • TURP or other BPH procedures (Bladder neck strictures)

The Allium Round Posterior Urethral Stent is comprised of a super-elastic structure, which fully covered and embedded in a co-polymer. By inserting the stent into the posterior urethra of these patient an immediate widening of the occlusion is achieved allowing an immediate urine flow. During the indwelling period of up to 3 years the stent maintains an open lumen, prevents ingrowth and provides a good passage of urine flow.

As with all the other Allium stents the following benefits are also applicable to the RPS stent implant:

  • Long indwelling time of up to 3 years
  • An easy Fluoroscopic insertion and positioning
  • Anatomical design
  • Large lumen
  • Excellent patient comfort
  • Excellent voiding control and a functional external sphincter
  • prevents tissue in-growth
  • Easily removable

Product Models

  • Delivery system – the RPS is mounted on a Rigid deployment system of 24Fr
  • Stent sizes available: the RPS is 30mm or 40 mm long and has a caliber of 45 Fr

The RPS is a minimal invasive solution that can be used in a simple 15-minute procedure. It is a minimally invasive alternative to more invasive treatment options, when bladder neck or anastomotic strictures are presented. As with all the other Allium stents, the RPS is a reversible stent that can be removed without influencing the anatomy of the patient.
