BOSTON SCIENTIFIC WALLFLEX Biliary RX Fully Covered Stent has reported up to thirteen percent migration rate (n = 156). With typical ERCP interventions costing $4,649, this can end up costing the hospital significantly.
In comparison, GORE® VIABIL® Biliary Endoprosthesis only has one reported migration out of 448 patients reported in the literature. Migration as well as lack of patency require additional intervention, resulting in additional hospital stays and increased hospital costs.
To see how the cost of reintervention can affect your hospital's bottom line, schedule a brief discussion with your ConMed Territory Manager for a custom value analysis.
