He connected the stent ends with a fine monofilament suture line to control expansion of the stent to the desired diameter and added a stent skirt at the end of the stent to prevent its dislodgement. The modified Z stents worked well and we created TIPS in the other animals (Fig. 20). The self-expandable Z stents were made from stainless steel wire bent in a zigzag pattern, with their joined bends forming cylinders. Their zigzag pattern gave them significant expansile force. They were constructed by hand in our research laboratory, mostly in stent combinations with individual stents connected together by monofilament suture.
