Valved One-Step centesis catheters are designed with an integrated self-sealing valve to minimize the risk of air entering the pleural space and to prevent fluid leakage during thoracentesis and paracentesis procedures.
Features & Benefits
The catheter’s low profile, tapered tip, and smooth transitions decrease resistance for less patient discomfort. Its echogenic needle allows for more accurate placement. Four large drainage holes are present for maximum drainage.
Up to 34% LESS catheter tip penetration force and up to 16% FASTER flow rate. Safe, controlled insertion with decreased procedure times.
