Silicone Airway Stents
Tried and tested for decades
Since 1989, Novatech has been offering the patented DUMON® stents - a stent system that has proven itself as a reference product for improving patient comfort in airway stenosis.
DUMON® stents are made of specially treated transparent or radiopaque medical grade silicone (implantable for more than 29 days). They are considered to be the gold standard with which all other stents should be compared.1,2
Since 2011, an optimised line of the original DUMON® stent is available: NOVATECH® GSS™ feature studs filled with gold and barium sulphate. They combine good x-ray visibility with an optimised endoscopic vision of the tissue.

DUMON® stents are manufactured from unrestrictedly implantable silicone and are very well tolerated by the airway mucosa. DUMON® stents are supplied sterile and ready-to-use.
“NOVATECH” and LOT number are printed on each DUMON® stent. This means that a NOVATECH stent can be identified as an original at any time. (excluding radiopaque stents and stents with diameters < 10 mm.)
To give the clinician maximum room for manoeuvre when treating airway stenoses, we provide a wide range of stent types, diameters and lengths.
- Tracheobronchial tumors
- Tracheobronchial stenoses with scarring
- Tracheobronchial stenoses after anastomosis, resection or lung transplantation
- Diameter reduction from intraluminal, extraluminal and intramural changes
