It’s all about patient outcomes…

The Ella Danis stent provides a fast, safe and effective treatment option for patients with refractory oesophageal variceal bleeds. Designed to tamponade oesophageal varices whilst maintaining normal dietary intake and minimising the need for high – dependency observation, Danis can stabilise your patient allowing time to plan future treatment options and improve patient outcomes.

  • Improved patient quality of life compared to balloon tamponade
  • A 2010 study concluded, ‘insertion of the SX-Ella Danis stent in patients with refractory variceal bleeding or complications of previous therapy is effective for the control of bleeding’1
  • Reduces potential resource-drain on high dependency units Can be placed without imaging guidance in emergency situations Significantly reduced complications and SAEs when compared to balloon tamponade in acute oesophageal varices2
