The major symptoms of malignant biliary obstruction result from a failure of bile to reach its proper destination which is often alleviated by the placement of a stent.

The Company's self-expanding stent diameter sizes, ranging from 5 mm to 24mm with the inclusion of the Sentinol system, offer new options for matching an appropriate stent to a given set of procedural demands.

"Adding this new stent to our self-expanding stent matrix gives physicians more options for choosing the right stent" remarks Paul LaViolette, Boston Scientific Senior Vice President and Group President, Cardiovascular.
