This medical device serves for retrieval of specific esophageal SX-ELLA stents:
The ELLA Extractor consists of two main parts – the bare extractor and the overtube.
The bare extractor is introduced to the implanted stent under endoscopic guidance. Following introduction of the overtube, and all subsequent steps are performed solely under fluoroscopic guidance. The extractor system allows safe removal of esophageal 'SX ELLA' type stents from the esophagus, including those which have migrated into the stomach.
