Catheters

De Smit Medical offer two catheter options for infusing the ExEm® Foam Kit:

GIS Catheter: (GISCATHN970) Argon Balloon Catheter 7 French: (MANCATH)

GIS Catheter: (GISCATHN970)

For easier insertion and reduced patient discomfort.

The GIS catheter has been specifically developed to overcome some of the difficulties associated with traditional balloon catheters which on occasions may be difficult to insert and uncomfortable for the patient, particularly when the balloon is inflated.

The unique tip design incorporates graduated beads which adapt to the patients anatomy for comfortable placement and closure of the cervical canal, removing the need for full insertion beyond the internal OS. The GIS catheter should be inserted into the cervical canal (just past the external OS) until a resistance is felt, without causing discomfort for the patient.

Features:

  • No balloon
  • Non-Latex, single use
  • Soft tip for patient comfort
  • No need to fully insert the catheter into the uterus
  • The graduated beads on the tapered tip adapt to each patient
  • Catheter shaft is malleable for curving to the patients anatomy for easier insertion
  • Larger lumen aids infusion and improves control

Argon Balloon Catheter 7 French: (MANCATH)

ARgon Man CathFor HSG and HyCoSy - Designed for ease of use and a more effective seal.

The ideal choice of balloon catheter for diagnostic procedures such as radiological Hysterosalpingo-Contrast-Sonography (HyCoSy). This HSG catheter has a soft, concentric, non-latex balloon which prevents leakage of the ExEm® Foam.

NB: we recommend the 7 french catheter for ease of infusion and greater control.Features:

  • Non-latex, soft, concentric balloon
  • Open-ended, round distal tip is soft and short to minimise trauma to the cervical canal and uterine cavity
  • The distal end-hole design allows for even distribution of contrast media
  • The malleable introduction sheath retains curvature to facilitate easy placement into the cervical canal
  • Color-coded stopcocks on both catheter lumens
  • Fixed volume syringe prevents over-inflation of the balloon
