ReSolve® Biliary Locking Drainage Catheter Receives CE Mark!

resolvebiliary-new

I am pleased to announce that the ReSolve® Biliary Locking Drainage Catheter has received the CE mark and is available for sale in Europe.

These catheters are indicated for drainage of bile within the biliary system. Often biliary systems need to be decompressed due to bile duct stones, extrahepatic, or intrahepatic tumors, and primary sclerosing cholangitis, among other reasons. In addition bile may also need to be diverted from a bile duct leak.

Biliary system lesions do not always occur in the same location in every patient. Because of this, Merit offers catheters with two different drainage hole configurations to accommodate patient anatomy and multiple disease locations.

Correct catheter positioning is important in these procedures. The catheter features a radiopaque marker band near the proximal shaft drainage hole, and non-radiopaque depth markers the entire length of the catheter to help with fast and accurate positioning.

Additional features:

  • Atraumatic pigtail
  • Smooth transitions
  • Large drainage holes
  • Hydrophilic coating
  • Kink resistance
