1-Lumen Rectal Catheters

pdf-stericom-blue2Stericom’s range of 1-lumen rectal catheters for measuring rectal/abdominal pressures offers the practitioner a choice of flap-valve or balloon designs, with or without introducers.

  • sterile & single-use
  • flap-valve range for paediatrics
  • 4 variants available (green PVC balloon)
  • pre-slit balloon for easy air expulsion

All catheters in this range are designed to be water-perfused from the luer, the air being expelled through the end-valve or the pre-slit balloon.

Each catheter features red-tinted Ch4.5 PVC tubing 2000mm long, designed to complement the bladder pressure lines. Translucent tinted, winged female luers are fitted to each catheter.

These catheters are fitted with a PVC non-return valve instead of a balloon. The flap-valve is ideal for paediatrics, and also offers a lower-cost solution for adult urodynamics. Flap-valve catheters are available either without (UDC 3420) or with flexible movable introducer (UDC 3421), which allows the catheter to be inserted finger-free.

  • PVC flap-valve employed in place of balloon to keep line clear for pressure measurements
  • Without introducer (UDC 3420) or with introducer (UDC 3421) available
  • 2000mm translucent red-tinted tubing, Ch4.5 to match bladder pressure lines
  • Water-perfused from the winged, red-tinted luer
  • Low-cost catheter, ideal for paediatrics

These catheters are fitted with a soft green PVC balloon, pre-slit to enable easy air evacuation from the line during water-perfusion. The practitioner may choose from a design with no introducer (UDC 3430), with moveable stiffened white introducer (UDC 3431) or fixed stiffened introducer (UDC 3432 & 3434) to enable easy finger-free insertion.

  • Soft green PVC balloon employed to ensure strong pressure measurements
  • Balloon is pre-slit to enable air to be expelled easily during water-perfusion
  • Balloon is shoulder-mounted to discourage catheter voiding during test
  • 4 variants available: without introducer (UDC 3430) with stiffened white moveable introducer (UDC 3431) or with stiffened fixed tubing section (UDC 3432 & 3434) to allow for finger-free insertion
  • 2000mm translucent red-tinted tubing, Ch4.5 to match bladder pressure lines
  • Water-perfused from the winged, red-tinted luer

Stericom’s range of rectal pressure catheters are used in conjunction with a range of cystometry catheters as part of a diagnostic procedure to assess bladder function.

As well as our 2-lumen PVC cystometry catheters we offer a less pliant pebax cystometry catheter and single-lumen catheters are also available as a lower-cost solution for the basic test.

We also offer other accessories for urodynamic investigations: pump tube sets for the different systems, extension sets and UPP catheters for uretha pressure profile investigations.
