Specialist Rectal Catheters

pdf-stericom-blue2

Stericom offers the practitioner two specialist rectal catheters for measuring rectal/abdominal pressures during UD investigations. Both designs offer differing but unique characteristics for the discerning practitioner.

  • 2 types available, sterile & single-use
  • shaped silicone balloon (UDC3410)
  • 2-lumen unique design (UDC3440)
  • finger-free insertion

The popular and well proven UDC 3410 Bovingdon® Catheter employs single-lumen tubing and a shaped silicone balloon, whilst the UDC 3440 catheter features 2-channel tubing and a sealed PVC balloon.

Both designs are latex-free and are stiffened for finger-free insertion.

The popular Bovingdon Catheter employs a shaped silicone balloon with a 90 degree shoulder, soft enough for comfortable removal but significantly reducing the incidence of expulsion during the test. The red-tinted Ch6 single-channel catheter tubing is 2000mm long, thick-walled to resist occlusion and offers strong, accurate pressure transmissions.

  • Flexible, shaped and pre-slit 30mm silicone balloon chamber cannot collapse: protects catheter lumen from blockage
  • 90° shoulder significantly reduces the incidence of expulsion, but is soft enough for comfortable removal
  • Stiffened 100mm introducer for “fingerless” insertion
  • Ch6 catheter tubing is 2000mm long to enable direct pressure dome-patient connection
  • Thick-walled Ch6 tubing to resist occlusion and give rapid, accurate pressure transmissions
  • Suitable for both rectal and vaginal pressure measurements

The UDC 3440 catheter employs a sealed, non-slit PVC balloon mounted on a stiffened 2-channel Ch10 tube. The entire catheter and balloon are water-perfused from the red-tinted winged luer, and the exit-tube sealed by a soft luer with attached watertight cap when all air has been expelled. The 1400mm long red-tinted Ch4.5 pressure line enables direct connection with the pressure dome, and connects to the 2-channel section via a Cathfix® connector.

  • Sealed soft green PVC balloon
  • Stiffened, 2-channel Ch10 tube for fast irrigation and finger-free insertion
  • Entire catheter is water-perfused and sealed with a watertight soft luer cap
  • Cathfix® connector at bifurcation junction
  • 2000mm catheter length including translucent red-tinted pressure line allows for direct pressure dome connection with no need for additional extension set
  • Catheter pressure lumen is Ch4.5 to match bladder pressure lines
  • Red-tinted female luer for pressure dome/3-way tap connection

Stericom’s 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 specialist rectal catheters, single-lumen rectal catheters with PVC balloons are available in a wide range of sizes and with various introducers.

Our cystometry catheter range includes a variety of 2-lumen PVC catheters  and a less pliant pebax catheter. Single-lumen cystometry 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.
