Cook Medical G19173 - SHEATH, DILATORS, FLXR, URETERAL, FUS-120020, EACH
Flexor Ureteral Access Sheath
The Flexor Ureteral Access Sheath was one of the first sheaths on the market to have a reinforced coil construction to resist kinking and compression. The sheath provides ureteral dilation and a continuous working channel for the introduction of endoscopes and instruments during ureteral access procedures. When compared to several competitor sheaths, the Flexor was shown to be less likely to buckle while advancing up the ureter.1 Use the Flexor to reduce the potential for trauma to the ureter during repeated instrument exchanges. The continuous working channel also protects delicate instruments and flexible endoscopes from damage, which can reduce the need for costly repairs.

The sheaths unique locking mechanism on the dilator hub secures the dilator to the sheath for simultaneous advancement of the sheath and dilator.
The ergonomic funnel acts as a handle during insertion. The large trough facilitates instrument introduction.
The external surface of the sheath and the dilator tip are AQ hydrophilic coated to create a low-friction surface to ease the insertion process.
In a randomized study, the Flexor sheath proved to be reliable for gaining ureteral access for flexible ureteroscopy.
The core consists of a patented coil construction to provide optimal flexibility and maximum resistance to kinking and compression.
The internal lumen is PTFE lined to facilitate smooth device delivery and removal. Thin wall construction provides the largest possible internal lumen while minimizing the outer diameter.
The dilator tapers smoothly from 6 Fr to provide gentle, one-step gradual dilation.
Suggested Instructions for Using Flexor Ureteral Access Sheath
- Place an .038 inch (0.97 mm) diameter wire guide the desired length into the ureter to establish a working tract.
- Grasp the sheath just below the instrument adapter and advance the dilator/sheath assembly over the wire guide and into the ureter.
NOTE: Be sure the dilator is securely locked onto the instrument adapter, ensuring the dilator/sheath assembly can be placed as a single unit, allowing one-hand placement.
- Confirm the dilator/sheath assembly is properly placed via fluoroscopy.
- While holding the Flexor sheath in position, unlock the fitting and remove the dilator.
- Introduce the desired endoscope or instrument as needed.
NOTE: Suture may be utilized to secure the adapter externally. Suture holes are conveniently located on the instrument adapter.
