  • Hood Y Stent & Channick Y Stent

The Hood Y Stent is designed to relieve airway complications such as anastomosis and stenosis following lung transplant. The stent may also be used to minimize chronic bronchial strictures due to tuberculosis and malignancies.

The Channick Y Stent is used in the management of tracheobronchomalacia. It is designed to support the trachea, carina, and mainstem bronchi with a longer tracheal limb. Fabricated of flexible, implant-grade silicone, this stent allows humidification and phonation. Inserted endoscopically, the specially designed bifurcated tracheobronchial tube fits snugly into the distal trachea, the carina, and the proximal bronchi. Fabricated of flexible, biocompatible implant-grade silicone, the Y stents allows normal humidification and phonation.

The Hood Intended Use and Instruction Manual, which is supplied with each product, provides detailed information on insertion technique, sterilization, and postoperative care.



These products have been treated with Ultra-smooth Plus® surface treatment. This proprietary technology modifies the surface properties of silicone. Ultra-smooth Plus® treated silicone is thromboresistant, resistant to biofilm germination, bacterial and fungal growth, and has less surface friction. See Ultra-smooth Plus® page for further information.
