Figure 3: Fenestrated covered stent delivery. (a) A 4 Fr catheter is positioned in the hepatic vein via the inferior vena cava and an exchange length 0.014” wire is advanced as distally as possible. (b) The 0.014” wire has been inserted through the covered stent (outside the body) which was then hand-mounted and advanced into position on a wire coursing from the inferior vena cava to superior vena cava. (c) The covered stent has been deployed and a 6 mm balloon was advanced over the 0.014” wire and into the hepatic vein, dilating the fenestration
