C.R. Bard 136404 Polyurethane Ureteral Catheters Indications for Use:
The Bard Polyurethane ureteral catheters are intended for use in the drainage of urine from the ureter. The polyurethane ureteral catheter is inserted through the urethra, into the bladder and up through the ureter. These catheters also allow the delivery of contrast media.
Directions for Use of C.R. Bard 136404 Polyurethane Ureteral Catheter
Ureteral catheters are designed in a variety of distal tip configurations. The anatomical characteristics of the ureteral orifice and physician preference should determine the choice of design in a specific clinical situation.
Closed Tip Placement (placed without a guidewire)
After placement of the cystoscope into the bladder, the ureteral orifice is located and examined and a choice of ureteral catheter is made. The catheter adapter is secured to the ureteral catheter, and the catheter is flushed to evacuate all air bubbles. Under direct vision, the catheter tip is positioned within the ureteral orifice. Contrast media is then injected through the ureteral catheter into the ureter. Under fluoroscopy, the ureter is visualized and required intervention determined.
Open Tip Placement (placed with a guidewire)
After placement of the cystoscope into the bladder, the ureteral orifice is located and examined and a choice of ureteral catheter is made. Under direct vision, the guidewire is positioned within the ureteral orifice. The ureteral catheter is inserted over the guidewire and advanced into the ureter.
The guidewire is removed and the catheter adapter is secured to the catheter. Gentle aspiration to evacuate air from the catheter can be performed at this time. Contrast media is then injected through the ureteral catheter into the ureter. Under fluoroscopy, the ureter is visualized and required intervention determined.
