PTFE radiopaque material is used to confirm placement of Amplatz sheath tip under fluoroscopy
Datasheet PDF
Balloon dilatation catheter intended to be used to dilate the musculofascial tract and renal capsule establishing a nephrostomy tract during a percutaneous procedure. The Tahina Nephrostomy balloon has a short shoulders and a short tip. The short tip provides close approximation of the dilating tract to the surgical site, enhancing access to difficult stone impacted calyces. Highly radiopaque marker bands provides maximum radiopacity to ensure accurate dilatation positioning in even the most demanding cases. The balloon has a 20 atmospheres rated burst pressure. Set includes: balloon catheter and PTFE radiopaque amplatz sheath.
