With Exclusive Pull-Line Deployment

Crafted of proprietary design and material, the GORE VIABIL® Biliary Endoprosthesis has revolutionized the palliation of symptoms caused by malignant biliary obstruction by presenting advancements in patency rates, demonstrated minimal migration and unparalleled conformability in tortuous anatomies.

Now, with the recent introduction of Pull-Line Deployment technology, this groundbreaking delivery system presents ease of use and enhances the physician’s control and accuracy in biliary stent placement. A pull of the deployment knob unknots the double-layered PTFE braid that attaches the stent to the delivery catheter and delivers the stent precisely where positioned.

The GORE VIABIL® Biliary Endoprosthesis is a flexible fully covered, self expanding metal stent constructed from nitinol and an integrated ultra-thin, non-porous ePTFE/FEP inner lining. The stated stent length on the catheter equals the measurement of the delivered stent. There is no foreshortening.

The GORE VIABIL® Biliary Endoprosthesis is available in a full range of lengths and diameters with both drainage side holes and a no-holes configuration.
