MAK-NV™ (Mini Access Kit Non-Vascular) Video Highlights Clinical Benefits of its Introducer System

I am pleased to announce the release of the MAK-NV Introducer System video.

Abscess, nephrostomy, biliary, cyst and other drainage procedure delays are often caused by:

· Introducer tip peelback,
· The inability to determine the exact location of the introducer tip, and
· Difficulty visualizing the needle tip.

The video highlights the clinical benefits offered by the MAK-NV introducer’s smooth transitions and radiopaque marker tip, as well as the MAK-NV needle’s echo-enhancement. The smooth transitions allow the MAK-NV Introducer System to track over the guide wire smoothly to minimize catching on tissue causing introducer peelback. The radiopaque marker tip on the introducer and echo-enhancement on the needle offer good visualization in the patient for accurate placement.
