When treating patients who are suffering from biliary obstruction, you strive to give them the best possible outcomes, and we strive to give you more device options. To that end, we recently introduced Zilver 635® Biliary Self-Expanding Stents with longer lengths and a redesigned delivery system with improved pushability. The Zilver 635 is available in 4, 6, 8, 10, and 12 cm lengths. The self-expanding stent features non-foreshortening nitinol, a push-pull delivery system, and a 6 Fr catheter.
And our Evolution® Biliary Controlled-Release Stents are available in 4, 6, 8, and 10 cm lengths. Woven with a single nitinol wire with a platinum core, the Evolution biliary stent is designed to provide uniform radial force, optimal flexibility, and conformability. Delivered via an 8.5 Fr catheter with kink-resistant Flexor® technology, the Evolution biliary stent combines flexibility for navigating tortuous anatomy and pushability for traversing tight strictures.

Including clinical cases and device deployment animation, the Cook Medical Endoscopy channel on YouTube features several ERCP-related videos.
An ERCP showed a 3 cm stricture of the right hepatic duct with marked dilation of the intrahepatic ducts and a total occlusion of the left hepatic duct. Deep biliary cannulation was achieved, followed by stenting.
