Stents, Pancreatic, Polymeric

Definition : Pancreatic stents manufactured from polymeric materials such as polyethylene, silicone, Teflon, or silastics; they are available in several different sizes to adapt to particular sections of the duct and/or to prevent migration. These stents are usually inserted using either percutaneous or endoscopic procedures. Polymeric pancreatic stents are mostly used to treat stenosis of the main pancreatic duct caused either by benign diseases (e.g., stones, papillary stenosis) or less frequently for malignant tumors, facilitating the flow of pancreatic juice into the duodenum.
