Boston Scientific has received CE mark approval for its CRE Wireguided Balloon Dilator used for endoscopic dilation of the Sphincter of Oddi following sphincterotomy.
Using CRE Wireguided Dilator, physicians perform Dilation Assisted Stone Extraction (DASE) procedure, thus providing an alternative method to remove difficult stones in the biliary duct.
The CRE Wireguided Balloon Dilator is made of Pebax material and is designed to deliver three distinct, pressure-controlled diameters in a single balloon, allowing gradual dilation of strictures.
The balloon’s rounded-shoulder design facilitates endoscopic visualization or Balloon Endoscopy and provides greater usable balloon surface area during dilation.
In the US, the CRE Wireguided Balloon is not cleared for dilation of the Sphincter of Oddi following sphincterotomy.
